The Quest for the Rotten Egg by Elizabeth Pulford was a fun book. My seven year old boy read it in two short sittings. He really enjoyed the short chapters, many only two pages, which made him feel like he was progressing through the story quickly. He's not overly interested in knights but for those who are I'm sure this book would have even greater appeal.

The story is about a knight, Sir Omelet, and his trusty horse Noodle. He goes on a quest to rescue Lady Eggwena, accompanied by his trusty servant Peabody. There is a magician, a princess and all the things that good 'knight stories' should have. But there is definitely a twist on any usual plots and lots of humour thrown in. The language is very colloquial and the story is full of many absurdities that are likely to appeal to young children.

Overall this is a fun book. While it didn't really appeal to my adult humour, my son said it was 'a pretty good story, but there were no machines or anything'. The ending was a bit disappointing, but it was a 'nice' story with nothing offensive in it. I think it would make a good read-aloud story for 4-6 year olds, and a suitable read-alone book for 7 to 9 year olds.
