It’s October 28th already, and you don’t have a Halloween costume. But worry not, because we’ve got your back.
Let Neil Gaiman Tell You About Fortunately, The Milk
by Susana Polo | 5:46 pm, August 27th, 2013
Neil Gaiman wrote his book Chu’s Day because all of his other children’s books had been rejected by Chinese publishers for having unreliable parental figures, among other things, and he wanted to make a book so adorable they couldn’t possibly reject it. Fortunately, the Milk does not appear to fit into that category, featuring, as it does, a father telling an elaborate story to explain the epic adventure he went on while going to the store for milk. While perhaps Chinese government censors think this sort of thing undermines principles of filial piety, it sounds pretty familiar to me.
