FORTUNATELY, THE MILK: Neil Gaiman & Chris Riddell


Fortunately, The Milk...Fortunately, The Milk... by Neil Gaiman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My husband found this charming little book in a thrift store a few weeks ago, and after binging The Sandman series on Netflix, I was definitely craving some Gaiman. So, I picked this up this morning and read it in a few sittings.

When Mum's away, the kids depend on Dad. He seems to have everything under control, too. Until they realise they're out of milk and can't have cereal for breakfast. So, Dad goes to get some but is gone for ages, and when he gets back he's got a fantastical reason...

I loved this! It's funny and the story unfolds in such an easy and clever way.

The Chris Riddell illustrations enhance this very quirky and fun tale about one father's quest to buy milk and get back home. While squeezing in an alien abduction, a very interesting inventor, pirates, a wrathful god, vampires, dinosaurs, a lot of time travel, and piranhas.

Yeah, this book is packed full of awesome stuff.

Plus, I loved that ending!

Neil Gaiman writes some very engaging stories, and never lets genre restraints get in his way.
