Review: Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman
Title: Fortunately, the Milk
Author: Neil Gaiman
Format: E-book (Kindle)
Date Read: December 7, 2013
Recommend: YES YES YES YES!
Summary: While picking up milk for his children's cereal, a father is abducted by aliens and finds himself on a wild adventure through time and space.
Review: The ability for this man to craft a story astounds me! Everything he writes, I fall in love with, and this one is no exception! This one I read in a couple of hours, and it is such an adorable, whimsical story that had me sucked in from the very beginning, and the illustrations are just pure delight added to an already fantastic story.
A father has to head to the corner store to obtain milk for his children's cereal so they actually have something for breakfast (and he has milk for his tea). However, it isn't just a simple trip to the corner store for milk as the father is then abducted by aliens!
This book features aliens, dinosaurs, time travel, strange jungle people, a volcano god, wumpires, and two children who ultimately can choose to believe or not believe their father's fanciful tale of what happened and why his trip to the store took longer than it should have.
