Fortunately, The Milk by Neil Gaiman
Posted by Caitie F on September 27, 2013
Summary from pub:
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.
In Neil Gaiman’s letter at the beginning of the book, he says he feels bad that his book The Day I Swapped My Dad For Two Goldfish is given as a gift for Father’s Day as it doesn’t paint dads in the best light. So he wrote this book about a dad doing something for his daughters.
I really hope dads (and moms) all over the country read this book to their sons and daughters. This book should be an instant classic.
It is so funny. At one point, I had to put the book down because I was laughing so hard I was crying. The illustrations add to the humor and heart of the book.
There is everything from aliens, a stegosaurus, vampires, and of course, the milk which could end up ending the universe. This is not your typical book, but Neil Gaiman is not your typical author. It really can appeal to everyone across generations.
The ending is brilliant and perfect. Buy this book for your dad, buy it for your kids, buy it for yourself. You will want to have this book around.
