The Terrible Thing That Happened to Barnaby Rocket

This book stands out from the crowd for its magnificent title alone, but your child will soon discover why its hero is head and shoulders above the rest. Barnaby Brocket is a boy who can float – much to the horror of his parents, who would rather he didn’t make a fuss and obeyed the laws of gravity like everyone else. But Barnaby experiences the ultimate betrayal when his parents (almost literally) cut him loose at the age of eight, leaving him to float into the blue – and encounter a hot air balloon! So begins Barnaby’s journey, in which he is to be joined by a whole host of new friends, in a celebration of finding and accepting yourself just as you are.
