Description - The Terrible Thing That Happened to Barnaby Brocket by Oliver Jeffers

The warm, funny and imaginative tale of a boy struggling to be accepted for his differences, by the bestselling author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.

There's nothing unusual or different about the Brocket family - and they're keen to keep it that way. But when Barnaby Brocket comes into the world, it's clear he's anything but ordinary. To his parents' horror, Barnaby defies the laws of gravity - and floats.

Soon, the Brockets decide enough is enough. The neighbours are starting to talk. They never asked for a weird, abnormal, floating child. Barnaby has to go . . .

Betrayed and frightened, Barnaby floats into the path of a very special hot air balloon - and so begins a magical journey around the world, with a cast of extraordinary new friends.
