The Lovereading4Kids comment
Join Sir Gadabout, the worst Knight in the world, on his tenth madcap adventure. Some old adversaries of Gadabout have taken over the pet shop in Camelot village and are doing something strange to the pet food. When Sir Gadabout’s lizard turns into a crocodile he decides its time to investigate. Full of jokes, puns and clever wit with characteristic illustrations from Tony Ross; this book is a good step up from Horrid Henry.
Sir Gadabout And The Camelot Calamity by Martyn Beardsley
Morag and Demelza, Sir Gadabout's old adversaries, have taken over the pet shop in Camelot village. They have adopted elaborate disguises and are keeping the real owner under lock and key, intending to cause so much chaos at the Round Table that they can move in and install themselves as King and Queen, with their ridiculous claim to the throne backed up by doctored family trees. The knights at Camelot begin to realise that their pet food is having a strange effect, and that pets they have bought from the shop aren't all they expected; Sir Gadabout himself has a little lizard which grows rapidly into a crocodile and terrifies everyone. The cause of the problem is eventually traced back to the pet shop and our determined knight is sent to investigate, resulting in the usual mayhem.
“An armoury of sophisticated, anachronistic jokes which will also tickle adults who read aloud.” Sunday Times
