Summary

Sir Gadabout is a walking disaster. Voted the 'knight most likely to chop his own foot off in a fight', he shivers in his rusty armour when he has to face the brave Sir Lancelot in a joust.

Sir Gads travels with his loyal squire Herbert to the wizard Merlin's cottage to get his ear stuck back in place after the joust and survives an attack by Merlin's crazed guard turtle. Then, when Queen Guinevere is kidnapped, Sir Gads sets out to save the day!

Join the loveable Sir Gadabout, loyal Herbert and Merlin's sarcastic cat, Sidney Smith, on a chaotic quest that will make every listener - child or adult - laugh out loud.

Critic reviews

"Clive Anderson's lively telling does the same for Gadabout by Martyn Beardsley, the knight voted the 'most likely to chop his own foot off in a fight'. When Queen Guinevere - a dab hand at woodwork - goes missing, Sir G sets out to find her, with hysterical consequences. A great one for four to eight-year olds - older ones will laugh despite themselves." ( Daily Express)
"Laugh-a-minute listening is offered by the farcical adventures of Sir Gadabout and his loyal squire Herbert.... Written by Martyn Beardsley with effervescent pace and an abundance of throwaway wit ('A long long time ago, even before television was invented'), it is read by Clive Anderson, a master of deadpan delivery." (The Independent)
"In the same benign but hopelessly funny vein is Martyn Beardsley's Sir Gadabout, the kind of knight 'voted most likely to chop off his own foot off in a fight' while stopping villains and litter-louts. Clive Anderson gives a robust reading, interspersed with Pythonesque music and plenty of silly jokes will keep 4-7s happy for an hour." (Independent on Sunday)
