From multi-award-winning Neil Gaiman comes a spectacularly silly, mind-bendingly clever, brilliantly bonkers adventure - with lip-smackingly gorgeous illustrations by Chris Riddell. Mum's away. Dad's in charge. There's no milk. So Dad saves the day by going to buy some. Really, that's all that happens. Very boring. YAAAAAAAAAWN. There are absolutely none of the following inside: GLOBBY GREEN ALIENS! INTERGALACTIC POLICE! PIRATES! And most definitely NOT a time-travelling hot-air balloon piloted by the brilliant Professor Steg ... Don't miss this gloriously entertaining novel about time-travel, dinosaurs, milk and dads.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A self-referential gem ... Both author and illustrator are craftsmen at the top of their game, making it look easy * Sunday Times - Children's Book of the Year 2013 *
Funny and inventive ... Neil Gaiman is a phenomenon * Guardian *
A story that is as entertaining for adults as children * Observer *
Neil Gaiman is the nearest thing children's books have to a rock star: if you enjoy fantasy, he is irresistible * The Times *
