Fortunately, the Milk

Fortunately, the Milk - Neil Gaiman, Skottie Young "We can't eat our cereal," said my sister, sadly.

"I don't see why not," said my father. "We've got plenty of cereal. There's Toastios and there's muesli. We have bowls. We have spoons. Spoons are excellent. Sort of like forks, only not as stabby."

My son told me I had to read this because, and I quote, "So there's a stegosaurus who's an inventor, and --"

I won't tell you what else he told me about the stegosaurus, because it turns out it was a bit of a spoiler. But I'm not mad, because the book was still a lot of fun. Go ahead and grab it from the library, especially if you have kids.
