“‘I bought the milk,’ said my father. ‘I walked out of the corner shop, and heard a noise like this: T h u m m t h u m m. I looked up and saw a huge silver disc hovering in the air above Marshall Road.’

‘Hullo,’ I said to myself. ‘That’s not something you see every day. And then something odd happened.’”

Find out just how odd things get in this hilarious story of time travel and breakfast cereal, expertly told by Newbery Medalist and bestselling author Neil Gaiman.

Quotes & Awards

  • “An absolute delight to read aloud. One part Douglas Adams, one part Doctor Who, and one part The Usual Suspects.”

    Cory Doctorow, New York Times bestselling author of Homeland

  • “If your kids still allow you to read aloud to them, this book is for you.”

    Newsday

  • “An entertaining read; bound to be reread and reread.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “It reads like an extemporaneous riff by a clever father asked a question he doesn’t want to answer, and it makes an excellent gift for those heroic fathers who consider reading aloud to their children one of parenthood’s greatest joys.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Children will devour this one, with or without milk.”

    Booklist

  • “It’s hard not to love a novel that borrows equally from Calvin and Hobbes and The Usual Suspects. If you read only one book this year, a story with dancing dwarfs is always a wise choice.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • Selected for the Autumn 2013 Kids' Indie Next List: Top 10

About the Author
Author Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman has long been one of the top writers in modern comics, and he has also penned many books for readers of all ages, including American Gods, Anansi Boys, Coraline, and M Is for Magic. He is listed in the Dictionary of Literary Biography as one of the top ten living postmodern writers, and is a prolific creator of works of prose, poetry, film, journalism, comics, song lyrics, and drama. He has written multiple New York Times bestselling books and is a Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, SFX, and Locus Award-winner. He has also worked in support of First Amendment rights and was awarded the Defender of Liberty Award in August 1997 by the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund for his efforts. Born and raised in England, Neil now lives near Minneapolis, Minnesota. He has somehow reached his fifties and tends to always need a haircut.
