Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Skottie Young
Disaster strikes one morning when there isn't any milk with each to eat cereal. Bravely, the narrator's father sets off to buy some, and is gone a long, long time. The father returns with the milk and a long excuse involving a professorial stegosaurus, time-travel, balloons, volcanos, aliens, wumpires, and pirates. But is the father's hilarious adventure made-up? Or did he really brave life, death, and confusion to bring his children milk? Gaiman's story is a ridiculous breakfast time read-aloud. Your dad may even find it more interesting than the paper.
