Dad goes out for milk so his kids can have breakfast (and, more importantly, so he can have his tea). He's gone for longer than he should be. His story involves dinosaurs, pirates, wumpires, a volcano, a hot air balloon, a time machine, and some aliens...Fortunately, he never lets go of the milk--and maybe even saves the universe. Skottie Young's whimsical illustrations and the wacky story would make this a great read aloud with your elementary school aged kids. You might even try having THEM concoct their own versions of what happens when mom or dad is out a little longer than expected!
