Make sure you always have milk.

This 2013 rather funny yet bizarre story by Neil Gaiman recounts a father's long-winded explanation concerning why he was so late returning from the store to fetch his children some milk for their breakfast cereal. The trip starts off rather innocently enough, but then the father is abducted by aliens, saved by a dinosaur, threatened by pirates; and the ordeals get more outrageous from there. Do his kids believe him? Gaiman recorded the audiobook version himself and it is always a treat to hear how the author wanted a story to be told. Quick paced and thoroughly entertaining, if you're listening to this during a car trip with your kids, none of you will want to get out until the CD ends!
