Aliens and vampires and time travel, oh my! Dad runs into ALL of these things, plus much more, on a short trip to the corner for some milk!
Do you like to eat your cereal with orange juice? I know I don't, and neither do the kids in Fortunately, the Milk! When Mom is out of town, Dad is left in charge, and what starts as a simple trip to the store becomes an out-of-this-world adventure!
Dad gets abducted by aliens, chased by vampires, walks the plank to escape a band of pirates and spends his entire adventure travelling through space and time with an inventor-dinosaur named Professor Steg!
I never knew that going to the store could be such a fun and exciting ordeal, and I loved the drawings that went along with this book! So, does he ever get the milk? You'll have to read it to find out!
I work in Adult Services and host Let's Dish, a monthly cookbook discussion group held at Northwest Library. I also enjoy reading historical fiction, creepy mysteries and nonfiction books about food and food history. When I'm not reading or trying new recipes, you’ll probably find me running on the Olentangy Trail!
