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!
