Fortunately, The Milk (Neil Gamon)

This book is by the same author that wrote Coraline. I like this one way more than Coraline!

I love this book. It is a real example of how even the simplest things in life can make a great story. In this story, a distracted father takes a quick trip to store for milk. You can't imagine the crazy things that happen to him while he's simply out getting milk! The fate of the Universe hangs in the balance. It's totally crazy, and his kids can hardly believe what he is telling them - but he has proof!! You will have to read the book to find out what the proof is.

This would make a great read aloud. It's funny and has lots of great illustrations. Love it!

Goodreads summary:

"I bought the milk," said my father. "I walked out of the corner shop, and heard a noise like this: T h u m m t h u m m. I looked up and saw a huge silver disc hovering in the air above Marshall Road."

"Hullo," I said to myself. "That's not something you see every day. And then something odd happened."

Find out just how odd things get in this hilarious story of time travel and breakfast cereal, expertly told by Newbery Medalist and bestselling author Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Skottie Young
