Fortunately, The Milk - Neil Gaiman


Title: Fortunately, The Milk
Author: Neil Gaiman
Format: Audiobook
Rating: 4 Stars


"I bought the milk," said my father. "I walked out of the corner shop, and heard a noise like this: t h u m m t h u m m. I looked up and saw a huge silver disc hovering in the air above Marshall Road."

"Hullo," I said to myself. "That's not something you see every day. And then something odd happened."

Find out just how odd things get in this hilarious New York Times bestselling story of time travel and breakfast cereal, expertly told by Newbery Medalist and bestselling author Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Skottie Young.


This book is ridiculous and silly and so cute.  If you have kids or you teach kids, this is a book you have to have around, because younger kids will LOVE IT! 

There are pirates, a bunch of talking dinosaurs (one of whom, obviously, is a doctor!), and some milk.

When the dad in this story ventures out to get some milk for their breakfast, the kids are left wondering why it is taking so long.  And when he finally returns home, he regales them with a story that includes all the above and more, and he does so in the most wonderful, adorable way possible.  

I don't even know what else to say, other than the fact that this is very clearly a book for younger readers (maybe in the 5-8 age range) and I STILL rated it 4 stars because that's how much I think kids will LOVE this book.

So, what are you waiting for - go have story time with this delightful and hilarious book.
