“Mr. and Mrs. Brocket pride themselves on being normal and avoid standing out in any possible way. Then they have a son, Barnaby, who floats -- the most abnormal thing any child could do! When the Brockets let Barnaby loose -- quite literally! -- he gets to meet lots of fun characters who also wouldn't fall into his parents' definition of normal. This is a great book for any kid who can't seem to fit in, and it will challenge readers' ideas of exactly what normal is -- and isn't.”
— Melissa Oates, Fiction Addiction, Greenville, SC
