Kylie Betznerabout this book: Imagine Camelot, home of the legendary King Arthur and his chivalrous knights—now turn that image on its head and you get Kylie Betzner's take on the well-known legend. Forget Sir Lancelot and Sir Gawain; this is not their story. Instead, join Sir Kay and his page, Pig, on their quest for the Holy Gift Box–er–Bread Basket–whatever it is! Laugh out loud as they face many knight-worthy, and some not-so-knight-worthy, foes, all the while fighting against time, mostly each other, and the most infamous villain of all—change.
Fans of Monty Python will enjoy The Quest for the Holy Something or Other. There's a subtlety and innocence to the humor that will appeal to both the YA market as well as to adult readers.

• "Fluid pacing, colorful characters, and witty dialogue contribute to the book's appeal." — Carrie.
