Book Review: Fortunately, The Milk by Neil Gaiman
Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Skottie Young
About the Book: “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. http://www.harpercollins.com/9780062224071/fortunately-the-milk#
My Review: A father went to the shop down the road to buy a bottle of milk for his kids for their morning breakfast. The kids waited a long while for their father to return but there was no sign of him.
When he finally returned, he had a story to tell them, a story involving aliens; pirates; ponies; wumpires and more. He told them how he heard some odd noises. He looked up and saw a huge silver disc hovering in the air and how he got sucked up into the disc. With all the adventure he had to go through on the disc he made sure to secure the milk. This book is not only funny but entertaining with the illustrations by Skottie Young which help to tell the story.
Find out more of what happened to their father on the alien ship. Visit http://www.harpercollins.com/9780062224071/fortunately-the-milk# or Amazon for a copy.
