Delightful! Lighthearted! So much fun. What a swashbuckling adventure. This book was adorable and entertaining. The illustrations were perfect. Fans of Roald Dahl will thoroughly enjoy this book.

Really, it has EVERYTHING.
It has

  • Pirates
  • Volcanoes
What more could you ask for in a story?

It’s a quick read, too. I read it on a 15 minute break and a 30 minute lunch. It’s very good for reluctant readers!

From Goodreads:
"I bought the milk," said my father. "I walked out of the corner shop, and heard a noise like this: T h u m m t h u m m. I looked up and saw a huge silver disc hovering in the air above Marshall Road."

"Hullo," I said to myself. "That's not something you see every day. And then something odd happened."

Find out just how odd things get in this hilarious story of time travel and breakfast cereal, expertly told by Newbery Medalist and bestselling author Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Skottie Young.
