Fortunately, the Milk is a ridiculous riot of a book written by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Chris Riddell. Their combined talents produce a far-fetched adventure as told by a father to his children as an explanation for taking so long to nip out for some milk. It’s a book to read and enjoy and laugh over – and then to read again, paying special attention to the pictures. It’s hard to see how you could go wrong buying this beautifully produced book.
So I said in my review for The Scotsman. Imagine my excitement when the paperback came out and I was quoted on the cover! I’ve read it a lot with classes and invariably there’s been a queue of children (and teachers) wanting to borrow it. If you need something to laugh about, this could be it.
