Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman with illustrations by Skottie Young is a delightful story about a father’s adventures running to the store to get his two children some milk. When their mother goes away, she seems to be unconvinced that he will be able to take care of them and it does take him a little longer to get home than it probably should. But once he tells the children why it took him so long, it makes perfect sense.
Okay. Not really. Because the story he tells is outrageous, unbelievable, and so much fun to read. The children occasionally interject their skepticism, reflecting what the reader is experiencing. Well, this reader, anyway. And the illustrations but Skottie Young are quirky, delightful, perfect for this book I plan on buying for Bibi because I’m sure she’ll love laughing along with ridiculous story.
Definitely a must read. And clearly a must own. So glad I borrowed this from the library. I needed something fun to read.
