Dare to be different,
This review is from: The Terrible Thing That Happened to Barnaby Brocket (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a charming book about a boy who floats. This isn't flying or anything intentional - literally if he isn't held down, he floats around, about and away.
Unfortunately, he comes from a family who don't embrace difference. In fact, quite the opposite. They just want to be normal. They are frightened of anything that is outside of the socially accepted norms. Barnaby's parents can't cope with him and can't stop him floating.
The story follows Barnaby as he is cast free from his family and his adventures as he meets different people and situations.
A lovely story for children. I would recommend it.
