'It was exciting, adventurous and bits were very scary'
It starts off with two people who think they are very normal - Alistair and Emily Brocket and their two children. Then their third child Barnaby Brocket is born and he defies the law of gravity which means he floats if he's not weighted down. When Barnaby was eight they have had enough. They take him into Sydney where they cut a hole in his sandbag rucksack that keeps him on the ground. He then goes on an extraordinary adventure around the world from city to city.
I liked it. It was exciting, adventurous and bits were very scary and amazing. Some bits were sad because he meets people who have been rejected by their families who thought they weren't normal. The pictures in the book made me laugh.
I would recommend it to 8-12-year-olds.
