Fortunately, The Milk is about a dad, a young girl, an older girl, and a dinosaur. The girls are eating cereal but they don't have milk so the dad goes on an adventure to get milk. He gets captured by aliens. The dad loses the milk and gets it back, loses it again, and gets it back. Sometimes the story gets really intense! In the end, he gets the milk.

I like this book because it is a very fun adventure book. My favorite part was when the dad travels in a "Floaty-Ball-Person-Carrier." This is really a hot air balloon! I liked the characters except the big sister. I didn't like her because she was never in a good mood. The younger sister was and she was also very funny. The book is for kids and grownups of all ages. I enjoyed this book because I like adventure books and it wasn't too hard to read. This book makes me think of adventures I could do by myself. If you like adventure books, you would like Fortunately, The Milk!
