The terrible thing that happened to Barnaby Brocket
By John Boyne

Cover illustrated by Oliver Jeffers

I loved John Boyne’s book The boy in striped pajama’s even if it was a tear-jerker and I am looking forward to his latest book.
Barnaby is no ordinary child really because he defies gravity and floats high up in the air. After struggling to cope with Barnaby and his abilities, his mother decides she got rid of him. Suddenly he is alone and floating higher and higher. But what an adventure Barnaby is about to face.
