With this code in ipython notebook I get a lambda error(see below)

quest = input("What is your quest?")

If yes, what is wrong with the code above?

Thank you

Error below:
StdinNotImplementedError                  Traceback (most recent call last)

in <lambda>(prompt)
    352             raw_input = lambda prompt='': self._raw_input(prompt,
ident, parent)
    353         else:
--> 354             raw_input = lambda prompt='' : self._no_raw_input()
    356         if py3compat.PY3:
