Product description

Normal be damned. Barnaby’s the coolest misfit. He can fly. He makes our spirits soar. Who cares about fitting in? John Boyne (the genius behind The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas) will get you floating on clouds in this joyful story of being who you are. If you were different, would your parents still love you? We hope so. Trouble is: like the awful Dursleys in Harry Potter, Barnaby’s parents only care what other people think. A son who floats like a balloon and soars high into the sky? Something awful is wrong with him. (Or maybe something awesome is right with him. What do you think?)
