The Terrible Thing that Happened to Barnaby Brockett – John Boyne


There’s nothing unusual about the Brockets. Normal, respectable, and proud of it, they turn up their noses at anyone strange or different. But from the moment 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.

Barnaby Brockett is a child born with an unusual ‘impediment’ – his body refuses to obey the laws of gravity and so he floats all the time. By the age of 8, he has still not outgrown it, and his embarrassed parents decide to abandon him, letting him float off into the sky. Luckily, he is rescued by a hot air balloon passing by, and that’s when his adventures really begin! John Boyne has written yet another enchanting story destined to be a children’s classic.
