“I bought the milk,” said my father. “I walked out of the corner shop, and heard a noise like this: thummthumm. 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.“
It was a Saturday evening and I was home alone (Well, the kids were asleep and my husband was at work.) and I just wanted to read (and finish) something quick and sweet.
This was the book I picked up and I loved every single page.
This is the story of a father and his two kids. Disaster strikes, there is no milk for the cereal at breakfast one morning. So, the father goes to the shop to get some. When he comes home, he tells his children what happened to him and it’s all kinds of wonderful.
What I loved most was that I could see myself as a mother, reflected in this story. Even though my daughter is only 3, sometimes I can’t help but invent the craziest answers to some of her questions.
If you want something short and funny to read, I cannot recommend this enough.
I have a feeling that Neil Gaiman will never let me down. I’ve loved everything I’ve read by him so far.
