There’s nothing odd about the Brockets – and that’s exactly how they like it. Normal and proud of it, they turn up their noses at anyone strange or different. But from the moment their son Barnaby comes into the world, it’s clear he’s anything but ordinary. To his parents’ horror, Barnaby defies the laws of gravity – and floats. Desperate to please his parents, Barnaby does his best to keep both feet on the ground. But one fateful day, the Brockets decide enough is enough. They never asked for a weird, floating child. Barnaby must go…
Betrayed, frightened and alone, 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! John Boyne’s joyful and thought-provoking new novel is a gravity-defying flight of fancy to make your spirits soar.
