Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman
Illustrated by Skottie Young

A young narrator and a younger sister wait ... patiently ... for their dad to return from the corner grocery with milk to put on the breakfast cereal. But when the dad does come back, he brings a tall, meandering, hilarious tale of adventures along the way. UFO's, hot air balloons, pirates, talking dinosaurs, a volcano god with an emerald for an eye, clever ponies, hungry wumpires, and the possible end of the universe, not to mention time travel.

Plus, fortunately, the milk.

But wait, there's more! For a special treat, check out the audiobook read by the author -- guaranteed to make 60 minutes of any car journey much better than it otherwise might be.

The charming booktrailer (narrated by Gaiman and animated with art from the book) is HERE. Adorable!

Highly recommended for readers and listeners ages 5 to adult.

The events may not have happened; still, the story is true.  --R. Silvern
