You know what it's like when your mum goes away on a business trip and Dad's in charge. She leaves a really, really long list of what he's got to do, and the most important thing is DON'T FORGET TO GET THE MILK. Unfortunately, Dad forgets, so the next morning he has to go to the corner shop, and this is the story of why it takes him a very, very long time to get back.

I wanted something lighthearted. With large print and lots of Riddell's wonderful illustrations, I was sure this would fit the bill. I wasn't disappointed. I don't want to say too much, for fear of spoilers, but I will say that there is plenty to enjoy here for adults as well as children.
