    1 thought on “Fortunately, the Milk”

    1. A review by my 9 y-o son, described by the utterly lovely Neil Gaiman as the 'best review ever':Today I was sick. My mum doesn’t always believe me when I say I’m sick, but my sister was sick yesterday so Mum said I could stay off school. ‘BUT,’ she said, ‘Don’t think you’re going to be lazing around watching TV and playing on the computer all day.’That was bad news. That is, indeed, what I was planning on doing. :( I was bored, so Mum let me borrow her Kindle to read a book that [...]

    2. It was a rainy morning and I felt like reading Neil's new book 'Fortunately, the Milk'. So I popped on my favourite astronaut t-shirt and caught the bus to my local bookstore, Snuffin and Kooks. I looked high and low for Neil's book, but all that was there were stacks of Paranormal Romance as far as I could see. "Excuse me," I said to the nearest droopy-eyed sales attendant. "Do you have Neil Gaiman's new book, 'Fortunately, the Milk'?"She rolled her eyes so far back that I thought for a moment [...]

    3. Fortunately, I read this book!HOW MUCH FUN AN HOUR CAN BEQuite funny, entertaining and it's a really quick read.What else can you ask?I did it on an hourAnd for that hour I had such wonderful time. In an hour I was lost in time, meeting fantastic characters and laughingRFECT COLLABORATIVE TEAMIf you decide to read it, keep in mind that it's a short story oriented for children, so please, don't harm the rating of this sweet book just because you were expecting "Neil Gaiman, the great mind behind [...]

    4. Neil Gaiman’s latest book, “Fortunately The Milk” is a boisterous tale of extraordinary adventure, time travel and milk. Gaiman’s is full of surprises, jokes and an awful lot of just being plain silly. If you can’t tell already, I loved this book. Gaiman’s tale narrated by a boy whose mother is away on a business trip, and whose father had to go out to the corner store for a pint of milk for the cereal and his tea. Dad takes an unconscionably long time getting the milk, and when he r [...]

    5. (A-) 83% | Very GoodNotes: Gaiman, like a chef savant boldly tossing supposedly dissonant ingredients into a pot, makes a heck of a tasty stew.

    6. Five bucks on Gaiman throwing darts at an idea-board.Why? Maybe cause of the time traveling dinosaurs, unicorns, wumpires and aliens.For such a decidedly whimsical book,it was unexpectedly fabulous. Two kids are left home alone with dad for a weekend while scientist-mom is at a conference (unexpectedly great reason for mom to be gone for the week!). Only, when it comes time for breakfaste kids discover that there's no milk for their cereal.Their dad bravely ventures forth to pick up some from th [...]

    7. I listened to this on audiobook during a car trip with my oldest boy, (Oot, Age 4.5).We both really enjoyed it. Though didn't get to see the illustrations, we got to hear Neil himself reading it, and he's a very, very good narrator. If you've never heard him reading his own stuff, you're really missing out.

    8. Click here to watch a video review of this book on my channel, From Beginning to Bookend. A quirky tale of time travelling dinosaurs, blood sucking wumpires (yes, wumpires) and enthusiastic pirates, made even more amusing by an abundance of winsome illustrations.

    9. Milk!! I think author has a great love for milk. :)This book is about a father who buys milk for his children. And after that, he gets trapped in a space-time continuum by aliens who wants to re-model the planet Earth and wants permission from him to do so as he is a representative of planet Earth. Lol! Father is telling his children the story of how he gets back to present-time in the whole book.FEELINGS WHILE READINGIt's a very delightful read. I enjoyed it. Really liked the adventures. This f [...]

    10. Funny! Silly! Crazy but sweet!This is an excellent book to read aloud to 4th grade kids who are in the process of developing a sense for the absurdities of life. It is mainly about telling stories and that you can make up a great plot about anything, no matter how boring the so-called truth of every-day life is. Small things give you big ideas - and they don't have to make sense. Fortunately, the milk was out - otherwise a couple of children would have missed out on aliens, pirates, Splod and va [...]

    11. Prava, pravcata dečija knjiga. Ako niste u stanju da se vratite u najbezbrižnije godine svog detinjstva, onda čitajte ovu knjižicu na ličnu odgovornost. Ilustracije su fantastične, kao i uvek kada Kris Ridl umeša svoje prste u Gejmenove specijalitete. Nisam pametna da li dam 4 ili 5 zvezdica, a ovaj smotani još uvek nam ne da koristimo pola zvezdaje, pa neka bude 4.

    12. Cooperation between Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell always results in something special. This is children's book but it's one that brings back child in me (which to be honest isn't that deeply buried). I had wide grin through out whole reading.

    13. A story can be found in every moment, step, and nook & cranny in life. Even a quick trip out for milk can turn into an adventure. Especially with Neil Gaiman around! The man has once again stolen my heart, giggles, and smile with a nonstop, swashbuckling spin through time and space with pirates, aliens, and wumpires. Come on, let go, and allow your imagination to wander around in Neil Gaiman’s head for a bit. Our story begins in the kitchen. Two kids, with dashed hopes and dry cereal, star [...]

    14. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/ What happens when Mom is away at a conference and Dad is left in charge? Well, of course they run out of milk. Follow along on Dad’s remarkable expedition to retrieve more milk. His adventure is filled with hot air balloons, dinosaurs, aliens, ponies, vampires and a talking volcano???Gaiman could write anything – I mean absolutely ANYTHING and I would read it, so when this definitely-written-for-kids children’s novel popped up on a Gaiman stalking [...]

    15. Right, well here I am cheating a bit - as I did not physically read this book. Neil Gaiman read it to me, in person! Chris Riddell drew pictures to help illustrate the story in the background on a screen and Lenny Henry even helped out with some of the voices. Other musicians and actresses were involved, quite a big event. (His wife, Amanda Palmer, even turned up to play her ukulele unexpectedly, with a customised version of a song tailored to sell the book. ;-)What a magnificent evening.The sto [...]

    16. Thank god for Skottie Young, his expressive and original style was the thing that kept me turning the pages. It's hard for me to say that because I want to like Neil Gaiman. And I am OBSESSED with The Graveyard Book, and I've been trying to find some other work of his to praise, but unfortunately this isn't it. It's an okay book. The story is kinda cute, in a cutesy rambling sarcastic way. It seems forced and quickly told, like Neil was at a party telling this story and someone wrote it down and [...]

    17. If Bruce Springsteen had written this book, it would have gone something like this:Got a wife and kids in Baltimore, Jack.I went out for a ride some milk, and I never went back.Fortunately, he didn't write it. Neil Gaiman did. And so, we're treated to a magical little tale of professorial dinosaurs, pirates, piranhas, and ponies. It's a merry old time, greatly enhanced by Skottie Young's illustrations.My favorite part was when it is revealed that Dad, (view spoiler)[ in a sneaky Keyser Söze-lik [...]

    18. Ovo je moj prvi susret s Gejmenom nakon kojeg mogu sa sigurnošću reći i početak jednog divnog prijateljstva. Moram napomenuti da nisam od onih odraslih koji imaju neutaživu potrebu da naglašavaju ono djetinje u sebi isticanjem da gledaju i uživaju u crtanim filmovima nazivajući ih animiranim. Ja sam, nažalost, bila ozbiljna i sa svojih šest i uvijek mi je nedostajalo mašte. Elem, ovo mi je predloženo od osobe koja me očigledno odlično poznaje iako se dosad nismo srele. Iz već nave [...]

    19. হা হা হা ভালই মজা পেলাম ভিন্নধর্মী একটা উপন্যাসিকা পড়ে। বলা যায় লম্বা লম্বা চাপাবাজির ক্ষেত্রে আমাদের বঙ্গের কিংবদন্তীসম লেখক প্রেমেন্দ্র মিত্রকে প্রায় দৌড় করিয়ে ছেড়েছেন নীল গেইমান! এক ব [...]

    20. Well I'm forty and some loose change years of age and I never, ever thought I'd be reading children's books again. I can't even remember reading them when I was a kid but Neil Gaimans 'are but aren't reeeeaaaally' children's books are an absolute delight, so much so, that I've bought all of them. There's gentle murmurs and mutters of darkness within and Gaiman is a master wordsmith that wraps you up in his stories, and its impossible to get out until the very end.Fortunately, the Milk sees Fathe [...]

    21. We thoroughly enjoyed this, a time travel book for kids. It feels like Neil Gaiman once got himself in a bit of bother with his kids and needed an excuse to get himself out of trouble. The illustrations were wonderful, something to look at on each page, the main character looking like the author really helps. If you like books with dinosaurs, pirates, aliens, human sacrifices and time travel, then this book is for you: If you like this and want another time travel book for kids then check out Te [...]

    22. Ameii isso aqui!! Ri alto com as coisas malucas que ele fala e é uma história que com certeza gostaria com contar pros meus filhos! O meu é ilustrado pelo Chris Riddel, meu favorito entre os ilustradores do Neil Gaiman. Que leitura deliciosa!Falei mais sobre esse livro e um pouco das edições Americana e Britânica (e do audiobook narrado pelo Neil) no meu video: youtube/watch?v=4zPtC

    23. That was so much fun! I highly, highly recommend getting the edition illustrated by Chris Riddell. It makes the reading experience so much better! I thought this was such a fun childrens' book, and Neal never fails to impress me. Can't wait to read more works by him.

    24. Delightful, fun and a super quick read. I adored the artwork. This book is perfect for a readathon. :)

    25. “You have your milk,” he said. “Where there is milk, there is hope.”Nail Gaiman and Chris Riddell again prove that they are a perfect combination of an author and an illustrator. The story, alone, is quite good, but when it is combined with amazing illustrations done by Riddell, it truly comes to life. A short, but fun and exciting story, that reminded me why Gaiman is one of my favorite authors.

    26. This is such a wild, wild little adventure. I though it was middle-grade, but it's more children's-reader-style. There's a LOT of illustrations and the font is large. It has a very British tone, too, which I adore. So it wasn't quite what I thought it'd beI still liked it. I ate it in like 15mins.So basically the story is about a dad who goes to get milk for his kidsd goes on a whirlwind adventure in the process. The kids are at home, staring at their dry cereal, while their dad gets kidnapped b [...]

    27. Mum's gone away on a business trip and has left Dad in charge. Uh-Oh! She leaves a really, really long list of what he's got to do while she's gone. 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. Featuring: Professor Steg (a time-travelling dinosaur), some green globby things, the Queen of the Pirates, the [...]
