The Terrible Thing That Happened to Barnaby Brocket - John Boyne, Oliver Jeffers
Sjeesh, his parents are really mean aren't they? OMG my kid isn't normal, lets just dump him. *rolls eyes*

And I didn't like Barnaby at all times, sometimes he just seemed to be much older than he is. Also that he didn't seem to understand that his parents dumped him, I think it would be clear, given the amount of dislike they gave him.

I liked the whole going around the world part.
