Sir Gillygad is a knight, a doughty knight, who rides about on his trusty frog called Gorf. They venture forth on adventures bold and exciting: to the Twinkle, to Holey Hill, to the Plain of Dreams—even as far as the World's End.

Then rumors are heard, rumors of an egg, a Gruesome Egg, with two legs, a left leg and a right leg, and the legs are bird’s leggs—which makes sense in an eggy sort of way. This leggy egg is haunting the Dark Forest close to the Mumbly Mews and the Gerwine Greneff. So off Sir Gillygad gallops (well, hoppedy-hops), there to meet and confront this unique and remarkable beast.

 Sir Gillygad and the Gruesome Egg is an adventuresome tale, suitable for children in grades 3rd through 6th, or thereabouts—and adults too, if they still are young at heart and open to the wonders that speak to the mystery of friendship, life and becoming.
