“You have your milk,” he said. “Where there is milk, there is hope.”
Title: Fortunately, the Milk
Author: Neil Gaiman
Why you should read this book: If you are a book lover then this is for you
Summary taken directly from Goodreads because it explains the book so perfectly and I didn’t want to ruin it:
You know what it’s like when your mum goes away on a business trip and Dad’s in charge. She leaves a really, really long list of what he’s got to do. And the most important thing is DON’T FORGET TO GET THE MILK. Unfortunately, Dad forgets. So the next morning, before breakfast, he has to go to the corner shop, and this is the story of why it takes him a very, very long time to get back.
“If the same object from two different times touches itself, one of two things will happen. Either the Universe will cease to exist. Or three remarkable dwarfs will dance through the streets with flowerpots on their heads.”
I really like this book. The illustrations were on point, perfect!! The Edward Cullen look alike wumpire?? Hilarious! Misunderstood wumpires were really needed in this story. The plot twist about the stegosaurus? Who saw that coming? I didn’t!
Neil Gaiman can take you to so many worlds, imagine many realities even in only a few pages.
It’s amazing how many things can happen when you go out to buy the milk! The next time I go out to buy something and are a little late I will tell a crazy story, too. Maybe if aliens really do abduct me, it’ll be so much easier!
“But it’s not later yet,” said Professor Steg. “It’s still now. It won’t be later until later.”
Time traveling is so confusing!!
Do I recommend it? Yes, you don’t need to be a kid to enjoy this story.
