An absolute delight of a madcap story for the young (and young-at-heart) by New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman, with equal parts pirates and piranhas, adventure and aliens, oddity and love. "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 story of time travel and breakfast cereal, expertly told by Newbery Medalist and bestselling author Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Skottie Young.


  • Great Bedtime Story

    By SyntaxMatters
    When your 11-year-old is disappointed the story is over after having spent three years being "too old" for bedtime stories and more interested in reading Tolkien you know you have a great book in your library. Every time I read Fortunately, the Milk all four of my children are completely enraptured. Thank you for such a treasure, Neil.
