Neil Gaiman's wild and witty tale is perfectly executed and complimented by Chris Riddell's wonderfully expressive illustrations. Creative, original and never, ever predictable, this crazy tall tale will amuse and engage children and adults alike.
I really enjoyed reading Fortunately, the Milk... and was especially tickled by the 'say what you see' names for things. I'm not generally a fan of the fantasy genre, and although this fits into that category it is also escapist fun and highly imaginative, reminiscent of the humorous classics of the late, great Roald Dahl.
I would highly recommend this book to boys and girls 7 years +.
Fortunately, the Milk... is published on 17th September by Bloomsbury Children's.
With many thanks to the publisher for providing me with an ARC of this book.
