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


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.
