FORTUNATELY, THE MILK, by Neil Gaiman

ImageThe story:  A dad goes out to buy milk, and his kids wonder what the heck is taking so long.  All is explained, however, when dad returns and shares the morning’s harrowing, death-defying adventures: he has been kidnapped by aliens, and all might have been lost had he not kept his hand on (fortunately) the milk.

Mrs Friend says: I loved this story! Anyone who’s a fan of Roald Dahl’s wackier books, or anyone who loves a totally random tall tale, will think this one is great.  One thing I really appreciate about Neil Gaiman as an author is that he defies categorization: everything he does is different, but all of it’s cool!
