Why read it?

1 author picked Fortunately, the Milk as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This one is different, in the sense that it is a children’s book. You can read it to your five-year-old, and you will both love it. A wonderfully tall tale by a father, explaining why it took him so long to get the milk. It includes dinosaurs, vampires, enchanted gems, and (briefly) magic ponies. But along with all this silliness, there is a story of a father caring for his children, a sense of family and love in which the story is embedded. A wonderful little book.
