The story starts off pretty simply: Mum has gone on a business trip and has left Dad in charge with a really long list of what he’s got to do. The most important? DON’T FORGET THE MILK.
Unfortunately, Dad forgets. And that’s when things get really interesting!
When Dad goes to get some milk he ends up setting off on an adventure featuring globby green aliens, intergalactic dinosaur police, the pirate queen and angry volcano gods demanding human sacrifice!
There’s also a time-travelling hot-air balloon piloted by a dinosaur called Professor Steg.
Fortunately, the Milk is possibly Neil Gaiman’s silliest story yet and it’s out now. Click here to find out more!
