Fortunately, the Milk (Hardcover)
You'll never believe it, but BookPeople was suddenly sucked into
the vortex of a rogue black hole this morning. Luckily, we had just
finished Neil Gaiman's newest book and were able to escape annihilation
using only the milk we happened to have on hand! Not since Mickey's
visit to The Night Kitchen has milk played such a pivotal role in our literary lives.
"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 New York Times bestselling story of time travel and breakfast cereal, expertly told by Newbery Medalist and bestselling author Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Skottie Young.
