Summary
Born with an ability to float in the air, Barnaby Brocket is entreated by his parents to hide his unusual trait until a fateful day when he finds himself on a journey that takes him all over the world and into outer space
Summary
Barnaby Brocket is a completely ordinary boy in every way except one: he floats. This displeases his parents, who dislike anything that stands out, but they put up with it until Barnaby is eight, at which point they decide they've had enough and allow him to float away. Betrayed, frightened, and alone, Barnaby begins a magical journey around the world and discovers that being different might not be such a bad thing after all.
