5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite Barbapapa book 4 April 2014
This is the best of the rereleases because you get to meet the children, and the children are really the fun part. There will be at least one your child identifies with. There's Barbalib, who loves to read, Barbazoo, who loves animals, Barbabright, who likes astronomy, Barbabravo (keep fit), Barbalala (music), Barbabeau (an artist) and Barbabella (originally Barbabelle) who likes pretty stuff. But she's not 'the token girl', as there are four female and three male barbababies. She just likes pretty stuff.

In this episode the Barbas are too big for their house so they move around, being chased by demolition machines. They work together as a family to build a new house and the machines still track them down. They are 'too gentle to hurt people', so they gum up the machines' jaws with sticky Barbaplastic, and then go back to their idyllic and eco family life. Not quite as arty as the previous two (which feature beautifully drawn French street scenes, London, and the Chrysler building) but more exciting for kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shape-Shifters for Shrimps 25 Feb 2012
By Amy Steele - Published on Amazon.com
Just combine French culture, these cousins to Shmoo, and ecofriendliness, and you got the Barbapapas! "Barbapapa" (French) means cotton candy, or, literally, "father's beard". (Hey, I'm just givin' the facts here.) Barbapapas are animals that can change their shape. Some examples: a swing, an umbrella, a wheelbarrow, a devil, a tent, an elephant. Very handy. The parents did procreate,and they had a litter of seven Barbababies: (Barba)Beau the artist; B.Lala, the musician; B.Belle, the beauty queen; B.Bright, the scientific one; B.Zoo, the animal lover; B.Bravo, the jock, and B.Lib, the bookworm. Oh yeah, and sometimes Frank and Cindy, the humans, come to visit. The plot: The Papas realize their house is too small. Frank tells them about a house that they can squat in, so they fix it up, only to have it torn down by Big Brother Builders. The new apartment that is offered to them is depressingly cage-like and uniform, so they escape the polluted, barren city to the fresh air of the countryside. Since they can change shape, Papa becomes the mold for the Barbaplastic that they use to create their new abode. Life is good with outdoor baths, gardens, and singing birds until the wrecking ball and pals pop up again. The Papas fight back with wads of sticky Barbaplastic that they use to only thwart the wreckers, not destroy them. Peace, man. They end the evening with the Barbababies' birthday party. My daughter loves this book, and so do I. What can I say, we are weird. Copyright 1972.

I searched high and low for this book...for years! I don't know what happened to my original copy but I loved this book. When my brother saw it at my house he told me it was one of his favorites as well and also ordered one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Family teamwork! 10 Mar 2014

I remember this story from when I was a child and remember it being one of my favorites. Not sure what my mom did with our copy? A great story about being flexible and joining together in teamwork for the greater good of all.
5.0 out of 5 stars reminded me of my childhood 29 May 2014

As a child I found Barbapapa's Ark at a bookfair and fell in love with it. I have been trying to get the other books for years but they're rare, usually not in great shape, and sell for a fortune. I was so happy to see the re-issues, though they have to be shipped from England (usually). Wonderful ideas of getting along, keeping the world pleasant and lovely illustrations.
5.0 out of 5 stars one of my favorite childhood books! 28 May 2014
By Jeanie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
We got this book when I was very young and it was an instant hit with all of us! This book was extra special since we had 7 children in our family too! It was so nice to be able to imagine having your own room and having it just the way you wanted it. And to be able to become anything was an even better thing to imagine! I think this book is very instrumental in helping young ones learn to use their imagination! Very highly recommended! :)
