I enjoyed these stories from France. Barbapapa and his family are...colourful blob things, for lack of a better description. They can change their shapes and become anything from a bed to a boat. Together they have all kinds of adventures from dealing with ghosts to being stranded on deserted islands.

There are story books, and there are comic books like the ones I have here, and of course there was the TV show that I enjoyed watching. And having done a little research for this review I can see that their adventures have been translated into several languages such as English, Italian and German.

Anyway, if you can get your hands on these stories, they are a lot of fun to read with your kids. You never know what to expect from the rather strange family of unusual but friendly creatures.
