This is the story a dad tells his son and daughter about why it took him a bit long to get home from the store with the breakfast milk. It has pirates, a volcano prophet, and a time traveling Stegosaurus who is also an inventor. The illustrations hit just the right note of goofiness. This book is perfect for reading aloud – The language is funny and it’s great storytelling (as well as being a good story). I found myself yearning for some of my small people while reading this; it was almost wasteful to read it silently. I will absolutely be reading this again next time my 88 is visiting, and I look forward to experiencing it as an audiobook.
