Fortunately the milk
By Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman has an extraordinary ability to write about anything and everything and writes it well.
One of my all time favourite books is his Graveyard book shown here in a previous post. A ghost story which is also a “feel good” story. Love it.
His sophisticated picture book Wolves in the wall is a little on the creepy but cool side and is always out of the library.
Stated on his website;
“This is quite possibly the most exciting adventure ever to be written about milk since Tolstoy’s epic novel War and Milk. Also it has aliens, pirates, dinosaurs and wumpires in it (but not the handsome, misunderstood kind), also a never-adequately-explained-bowl-of-piranhas, not to mention a Volcano God.”

I am really looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of this book. The trailer is gorgeously funny.
There are two publications of this book (UK and USA) and I have to admit I am going for the one illustrated by Chris Riddell as I just adore his illustrations.
