  5. kclarke says:

    This is a masterpiece of literature. It is a funny book about a family who live in their friend’s garden and have four amazing adventures. My favourite of the series is when they try to find a new house because their first house is too small and their second is destroyed, so they must struggle to build and defend their newfound home. It also contains wonderful illustrations.

    It was sad when he didn’t have any friends, I wanted his family to be there. But he saved all the people and the firemen were too late!

  18. Henry Roberts says:

    This is really good. Barbapapa is helpful. He saves some people from a fire by stretching himself to make stairs. It’s clever that he can change shape. My favourite bit was when the machines lost the fight and didn’t knock down the building. I liked that it was in French.

    I liked it that Barbapapa found a friend in the end. I like it because Barbapapa can change shape. It was sad at the start but happy at the end.

  23. Mr Milne says:

    Adventures of a friendly and gentle, candyfloss-pink, species of shape-shifter, grown out of the soil like a plant – I think it would be nice if there were some barbapapas living in London!

    I like this book. It is about a shapeshifter that was born in a garden. There is also animations about it. I like the animation more because it is French and it is easyer to understand what’s going on and the book is hard to understand.
