Product description

The greatest ever book title. The greatest artist-writer team. Genius from the 2010 Carnegie victors. You may remember Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell from their massive Carnegie Medal winner The Graveyard Book. If not, we hope you’ve at least seen Neil Gaiman’s awesome Doctor Who episodes. (We loved them.) Now this epic pair return with a new book that’s all about – you guessed it – buying a pint of milk. The most-wanted fantasy of the year: a time-travelling dinosaur, a pirate queen and the famed jewel known as the Eye of Splod. Plus Chris Riddell’s awesome drawings, of course!

    This book will loved by all children who think that their parents don’t tell them the truth about many things because they think the children are too young to understand. What makes this book so amazing is how a routine activity like buying milk could turn out to be such an adventure!!!!! Anyone who likes science fiction and fantasy along with some great humor should read this book.

    I loved this book! Even though I think I’m a bit old for it. It was very good anyway. It was quite short to read.

    There is no milk for breakfast, so dad pops out to buy some milk from the corner shop. He returns hours later, explaining how he got dadnaped by green blobs, in a cycle metal spaceship. He escaped form the spaceship and time travelled with a stegosaurus. Meet a face on a side of a volcano and stole his eye twice. And saw dinosaur police in uniform and how he finally got home to have some breakfast. Luckily he managed to get the milk home.

    My favourite bit was when the children said that they didn’t believe the story because it was funny, after dad said all the story and even included pink ponies and they still did not believe him.

    This book is suitable for children 5-9 years as it’s very imaginative. Also it’s not too hard to read, and there loads of pictures to look at and imagine what everyone and thing looks like.
