In Fortunately, the Milk, by beloved storyteller Neil Gaiman, a father''s quick trip to the grocery store turns into a much longer outing when he is abducted by aliens.

There''s no milk for cereal. No matter-Dad will run down to the store to pick some up. The children wait. And wait. And wait. Dad better have a pretty good excuse for taking so long.

In a delightful reversal of how things usually go, the father is the one making up wild, impossible stories, and the child is the rational listener who isn''t buying a word of it.

About the Author

Neil Gaiman was born in Portchester, England on November 10, 1960. Gaiman worked as a journalist and freelance writer for a time, before deciding to try his hand at comic books. Some of his work has appeared in publications such as Time Out, The Sunday Times, Punch and The Observer. His first comic endeavor was the graphic novel series The Sandman. It is the comic book he is most famous for and the series has won every major industry award, including 9 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards, 3 Harvey Awards, and the 1991 World Fantasy Award for best short story, making it the first comic ever to win a literary award. He writes both children and adult books. His adult books include Stardust, which won the Mythopoeic Award as best novel for adults in 1999; American Gods, which won the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, SFX, and Locus awards; and Anansi Boys. His children's books include The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish; Coraline, which won the Elizabeth Burr/Worzalla, the BSFA, the Hugo, the Nebula, and the Bram Stoker awards; The Wolves in the Walls; and The Graveyard Book, which won the Newbery Award in 2009. He also co-wrote Good Omens with Terry Pratchett. He is currently working on making a film of one of his early books, Neverwhere. His most recent work is entitled Fortunately, the Milk.

Editorial Reviews

Gaiman knocks it out of the park again with this imaginative story. - School Library Journal

This would also make a wonderful readaloud, but don''t be surprised if the kids insist that it be read in one sitting--and maybe with a side of cookies and milk. - Bulletin of the Center for Children''s Books

"[A] delightful tale." - Wall Street Journal
