There was only orange juice in the fridge. No milk. None at all. And for breakfast cereal, no milk just won’t do. No milk also means that father can’t have his tea, so he went out to the corner store to get some. And that’s how his weird tale featuring aliens, pirates, ponies, wumpires, piranhas and dinosaurs started.
As per usual, Neil Gaiman’s latest Fortunately, the Milk is a riot. The highly improbable story sways every which way, and Skottie Young’s illustrations (in the American edition) are a real treat too.
