Staff Reviews


A boy wants a bowl of cereal (there’s no milk!), his dad goes to get some and comes home with one of THOSE stories–he was taken by aliens, fell through the time-space continuum, found by pirates, rescued by a stegosaurus – and that’s just the beginning. It’s very funny and begs to be read out loud. (Angela)

Description


"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 New York Times bestselling story of time travel and breakfast cereal, expertly told by Newbery Medalist and bestselling author Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Skottie Young.

Praise For…


Gaiman knocks it out of the park again with this imaginative story.

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.

“[A] delightful tale.”

“If your kids still allow you to read aloud to them, this book is for you.”

“[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.”

“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.”
