It’s that time of year when everyone starts thinking about Christmas. I’ve got not one, but TWO Christmas novellas coming out in the next month. The first one is out next week.
Tammy is normally at her happiest at Christmas when she has the flat to decorate and those perfect days between Christmas and New Year to relax. But when her long term partner dumps her with no real explanation, her Christmas starts to look very bleak.
Lawrence usually spends Christmas watching DVDs and catching up on his paperwork. At thirty one, he’s already stuck in a rut.
When Lawrence has a sudden heart attack, it is Tammy who comes to his rescue. It turns out a happy Christmas can be made from the most unexpected ingredients.
You can preorder it now – or just order it in the normal way next week.
Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I picked this up when I went to the library to get a book for my 7 yr old. I got a book with ponies and detectives in for her and this one for me. In the end, my husband and I read it to her (I had to take over when he was incapacitated because of laughing too hard) and we all had a great time. This should tell you pretty much everything you need to know about the book. In case it doesn’t, here’s a more traditional review:
The narrator’s Dad goes out for milk and has a series of fairly incredible adventures in space and time. There are aliens, dinosaurs, volcano gods, ponies, pirates, sharks, piranhas… So, something for everyone, pretty much. It’s a very funny children’s story. There’s also a bit about time travel and some discussion about what happens when something comes into contact with a future/past version of itself.
If this is the first time your little person has been introduced to the idea of time travel, brace yourself for questions in the morning.
