Knot Gneiss by Piers Anthony
This is the 34th book in the Xanth series by Piers Anthony.
I have read all of them.
In this latest novel, Wenda Woodwife, goes to see the Good Magician Humphrey to find out how to deal with her moodiness, which, she learns was caused by the swing at her castle - the swing was a mood swing - one of the many puns which abound in the land of Xanth. She is sent on a quest which she goes on with several companions all of which find what they are looking for amid the puns that are involved.
Due, most likely to the author's aging and health problems, the later novels in this series rely more heavily on sexual innuendo and less on plot, but they are still fun to read.
