5.0 out of 5 stars So happy these are back in print, 15 Nov 2013
This review is from: Barbapapa (Hardcover)
The Barbapapa books are delightful - eco friendly, politically correct, aesthetically beautiful... but for your kids, just really simply and lovely and fun. Barbapapa is a fun weird monster, the shapes he makes are fun, there's a lot of elements of imagination and wish-fulfilment in his shape-shifting, animals are always involved. This first book, which I discovered today in a little bookshop after having searched for it for years online with no luck, is not *quite* as fun as the later ones, and I hope the Barbapapa books get fully released. The reason is Barbapapa's kids are lovely. They all have different personalities, there are several girls. This is important because it means your little girl doesn't have to like the one who's a girl whose personality is a girl just because she's a girl. She will identify with the (male) Barbazoo who likes animals or the (female) Barbalala who likes music or the (female) Barbalib who likes reading or the sporty Barbabravo. (There's a 'girly' one, too. It's her choice.) And sorry to talk about the book this ISN'T!

In this story, Barbapapa is discovered in a garden. There isn't too much exposition. It's an excellent story your kids will love it.
