Fun little adventure that made me chuckle throughout.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Nothing at all in this book makes sense to me, but what if this life-changing journey is real? Try to wrap your head around a dinosaur whose expertise is Science, a hot air balloon, pirates, several wormholes, one mom's list of things not to do while she's away, two witty little kids, and one clever dad on his journey to get some milk. Gaiman pieces all those and many more in a lovely, enjoyable blend of fiction.
a dad goes out to buy his children some milk. on his way home meets a stegosaurus that takes him to a lot of places before he gets home. he then tells the story to his kids.

I said good-bye to all the dinosaurs. I thanked Professor Steg for saving my life. "Not at all," she said. "We were both fortunate that you had the milk with you.

The space dinosaurs all had their picture taken holding the milk and smiling at the camera. "What are you going to do with the milk?" they asked me, "Are you going to put it in a museum?" "No, I am not," I told them. "I am going to give it to my children for their breakfast cereal. and possibly I will pour some in my tea." - See more at: http://jocolibrary.bibliocommons.com/item/show/1267245036_fortunately,_the_milk#sthash.C5hLd5oV.dpuf
