Description



About the Book



"While picking up milk for his children's cereal, a father is abducted by aliens and finds himself on a wild adventure through time and space."--Publisher's description.



Book Synopsis



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.

Review Quotes



"[A] delightful tale."--Wall Street Journal

"It's hard not to love a novel that borrows equally from Calvin and Hobbes and The Usual Suspects. If you read only one book this year, a story with dancing dwarfs is always a wise choice."--Kirkus Reviews

This would also make a wonderful readaloud, but don't be surprised if the kids insist that it be read in one sitting--and maybe with a side of cookies and milk.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"[A]n astounding tale...an absolute delight to read out loud....one part Douglas Adams, one part Doctor Who, and one part The Usual Suspects."--boingboing.com

"If your kids still allow you to read aloud to them, this book is for you."--Newsday

Gaiman knocks it out of the park again with this imaginative story.--School Library Journal
