Fortunately, The Milk

When Dad explains why it took so very long to get the milk from the corner store, a 9780062224071brother and sister have to listen to an outrageous tale including a professor dinosaur, time travel and a hot air balloon. The book is reminiscent of Dr. Seuss’s And To Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street except it’s the dad telling the story and it’s Neil Gaiman’s voice and it’s Skottie Young‘s black and white illustrations. It’s also much longer, more like an illustrated novel with special fonts. There are no chapter breaks, and it’s fast-paced,  making it easy to read in one sitting. 

Ah, milk, it does a body good. Especially the literary kind.
