Publisher's Summary

Fortunately, the Milk... by Neil Gaiman, read by Neil Gaiman.

From multi-award-winning Neil Gaiman comes a spectacularly silly, mind-bendingly clever, brilliantly bonkers adventure.

Mum's away. Dad's in charge. There's no milk. So Dad saves the day by going to buy some.

Really, that's all that happens. Very boring. Yawn.

There are absolutely none of the following inside: globby green aliens! Intergalactic police! Pirates! And most definitely not a time-travelling hot-air balloon piloted by the brilliant Professor Steg....

"Funny and inventive...Neil Gaiman is a phenomenon." (Guardian)

"A story that is as entertaining for adults as children." (Observer)
