    One thought on “The Terrible Thing That Happened to Barnaby Brocket”

    1. Estou aqui, abraçada com esse livro. Só sei dizer que foi uma experiência maravilhosa. A história e as mensagens me tocaram muito e fiquei super emocionada. Um livro que tem a premissa de um menino que é diferente, ele flutua. Já começou genial. E os desafios que ele passa e as pessoas que ele conhece, ensinam coisas pra ele e pra gente. Livro que depois que acaba fica com a gente no coração! Obrigada pelo presente, Vitor! Esse livro precisa mesmo ser espalhado para o mundo! ❤️❤ [...]

    2. I got this book through a giveaway and hoped that it might spark a renewed interest in reading in my maths/science obsessed daughter. After reading the blurb and flicking through it she asked if we could read it together so we spent the weekend doing just that. Barnaby Brocket is a boy who can float and goes on some adventures all around the world. It's a typical kids book, however it also has a hidden depth to it that perhaps not all younger readers will appreciate. It makes you question what [...]

    4. Foi o primeiro livro deste autor que li e que melhor forma de começar. É daqueles livros que dá vontade de sair para a rua e destribui-lo a todas as pessoas. Toda a gente deveria ler esta historia e nunca esquecer que temos que aceitar as nossas diferenças, porque são elas que nos tornam especiais.

    5. Eu realmente não esperava que eu fosse gostar TANTO desse livro <3Uma história muito linda, que fala sobre todo tipo de diferença e que passa uma mensagem linda de que tudo bem ser diferente. Teoricamente é um livro infantil, mas eu recomendo pra todo mundo. Um daqueles livros que aquece o coração e deixa a gente com um sorriso no rosto nas últimas páginas!Adorei!

    6. Tohle bylo neuvěřitelně milé čtení! Úsměvné a zároveň poučné, pro děti i hravé dospěláky, doplněné o ilustrace.

    7. No recuerdo haberme reído y frustrado tanto a la vez con un libro. Ha sido genial. Tiene un toque cómico que se agracede, e incluso me recordaba a Matilda en ciertas ocasiones (una cucada de libro). Muy recomendable para pasar el rato echándote unas risas.“Algunas personas simplemente no pueden aceptar algo que se escape a su experiencia.”

    8. This book was definitely interesting; meant for children but highly packed with valuable morals people of all ages need to be reminded of. The main moral: its perfectly fine to be different.I've read Boyne's Noah Barleywater Runs Away, so I wasn't surprised with certain fantasy and illogical elements being written about. Being very used to YA and adult books though, I had to keep reminding myself that it's a children's book so its perfectly okay to read about a boy who can float and travels arou [...]

    9. Adorei a mensagem do livro, e acho um livro super indicado para os jovens. E mesmo para os grandes, para refletirem um pouco nas suas atitudes. Compreenderem que temos que aceitar toda a gente, mesmo que sejam diferentes ou façam escolhas que não são do nosso agrado.é uma historia simples, que flui super bem.

    10. This review first appeared on The Book Zone(For Boys) blogIs there no end to the talent of John Boyne? The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas = incredible!Noah Barleywater Runs Away = amazing!If you have read either of Boyne's previous books for younger readers then you will know what to expect from Barnaby Brocket - a heart warming and uplifting tale that will tug mercilessly at your heartstrings, with some pretty heavy themes that are woven into the story with humour and deftness of touch that make th [...]

    11. “Just because your version of normal isn't the same as someone else's version doesn't mean that there's anything wrong with you.” Normal. Menurut KBBI adalah menurut aturan atau menurut pola yang umum; sesuai dan tidak menyimpang dari suatu norma atau kaidah; sesuai dengan keadaan yang biasa; tanpa cacat; tidak ada kelainan.Dari buku ini kita belajar tentang "kenormalan' tersebut. Bagaimana setiap orang mendefinisikan kata normal. Sesuatu dibilang normal, ketika sekumpulan atau banyak orang [...]

    12. John Boyne mě naprosto dostal příběhy Chlapec v pruhovaném pyžamu a Chlapec na vrcholu hory. Od Kromobyčejné pouti jsem čekala zase něco jiného a vůbec mě to nezklamalo. Útlá knížečka na jeden večer představuje příběh Barnabyho, který chytne za srdce. Chování rodičů mě dovádělo k šílenství, ale na druhou stranu se mi líbilo, k čemu to vedlo. Ukázalo se, že prostý dětský pohled někdy obsáhne vše, co je potřeba. A ten závěr John Boyne je výborný.

    13. Popsugar Reading Challenge 2017 - A book by an author from a country you've never visited. 6/52 What a beautiful book and a beautiful story!Barnaby Brocket is a very special boy from the moment he is born. Barnaby Brocket floats, much to the great horror of his parents. And then the terrible happens and he floats away toward adventure.I really enjoyed this book. It was quirky and strange and it's about acceptance of one's weirdness. It had beautiful illustrations that mirrored the mood of the bo [...]

    14. This is quite a sad book.To read it as an adult had me close to tears. That Barnaby's parents could be so awful, could resent him so muchBut if I'd read this as a child I think it would have been a wonderful adventure. To float, to go anywhere, to inadvertently travel the world and meet so many different characters, it would have been wonderful.This book teaches some great lessons - the most important are that it's not wrong to be different and that everyone has their own definition of normal. I [...]

    15. Tämä on kyllä yksi omituisimmista lastenkirjoista mitä olen ikinä lukenut, enkä tällä kertaa tarkoita sitä pelkästään positiivisena asiana. Tuhahtelin älyttömyyksille monta kertaa lukemisen aikana mutta toisaalta taidan olla ihan liian tosikko, kuten on jo monesti aiemminkin todettu.Suosittelisin tätä kirjaa mielikuvitustaan kahlitsemattomille taiteilijaseikkailijoille. Hauskaa matkaa!

    16. The terrible thing that happened to Barnaby Brocket, wasn't really a terrible thing in my eyes, because it made him see how truly special he was. OK, his mother went against any scrap of maternal instinct she might have had and didn't really lose any sleep over what she did, but to be honest, Barnaby was much better off with out his parents. Barnaby was exceptional, clever, mature and thoughtful; the kind of child you would love and adore. The only thing that made him different from other childr [...]

    17. Barnaby Brocket is no ordinary boy as he defies the laws of gravity, floating off if he isn't physically restrained. His parents cannot accept his differences and go to extreme lengths to keep him grounded, physically and mentally. One day, Barnaby floats away and you hope he will experience better examples of humanity once freed from the suffocating normality of his earth-bound family.Before I got the opportunity to "meet" Barnaby he was kidnapped by my two children, aged 8 and 12, and both wer [...]

    18. I like how the author see 'normal' as a subjective term. What normal for you might not be normal for me and that doesn't make me or you any less normal. All of us is different from one another, be it our appearances, our mind set, our principles and life styles. Nobody is the exact copy of the other, so how much 'normal' can something be for it to be called as 'normal'?Instead of being too quick to judge or punish those who are different than us, why can't we embrace it? That's the colours of li [...]

    19. After more than a month reading this, (not that its boring or anything, I was just busy) I'm glad that I have finished it!Damn Barnaby, all those adventures that you have and you're just 8 years old! I'm totally on your side kid, who would wanna be normal when you can be different and have a lot of adventures right? RIGHT?

    20. "Un chico que estaba preparado para conocer a gente nueva.Un chico que quería vivir aventuras nuevas.Y lo principal, un chico que estaba orgulloso de ser diferente."

    21. 4.6/5 bc of how magnificent the whole story is. i really fond of reading children book like this which makes me thinking not as a grown up but as a human being.

    22. Comenzaré con un: este libro es un aventura de altura.No quisiera sonar igual que la película UP: UNA AVENTURA DE ALTURA, pero tiene  mucho sentido describir este libro de esa manera.La historia nos habla de Barnaby un niño que desobedece a la ley de gravedad y simplemente lo hace elevándose por los aires.Sus padres son unas personajes muy prejuiciosas y les importa lo que los demás piensen de ellos así que tener un hijo que vuela no es algo con lo que quieran liar.Así por cosas del dest [...]

    23. I don't really know what else to say apart from, I LOVE this book! It's just one of those rare novels that's heart-warming and sweet in every way possible. You really shouldn't be put off by the almost childish cover (in my opinion, it's so cute!) because this book shouldn't be missed by anybody! It's definitely a book that can be enjoyed by all ages!One thing I adored about this book, is that it reminded me so much of Roald Dahl's books! And who doesn't love Roald Dahl?! Yet again just let me s [...]

    24. 4.0/5 estrellasReseña sin spoilersEste es un libro sencillo, que no intenta abarcar mucho, pero que logra ahondar en el tema que ha elegido de una manera muy efectiva, y también conmovedora.Barnaby Brocket nació en una familia completamente "normal". Uso las comillas porque, y esta es una pregunta que surge más adelante en el libro, ¿de verdad es normal querer ser tan normal todo el tiempo? Para los padres de Barnaby no había nada más maravilloso que no destacar entre el resto de ninguna [...]

    25. I was drawn to this book because I like quirky stories, and I'm a huge fan of Oliver Jeffers (the illustrator). And this book started out great! Poor Barnaby Brockett, born to terrible parents, sibling to two very ordinary kids, and master to one devoted dog. The book reads much as a classic Roald Dahl book might (complete with TERRIBLE parents!), and Jeffers's illustrations add a similar touch as Quentin Blake's might.And yet, the book gets both more absurd and a trifle more boring in the secon [...]
