Barbapapa is a huge blob of pink who lives with Francois and his family. Generally peace-loving and happy, Barbapapa has fallen on dark times: he needs to find a Barbamama. His search leads him to India, New York, and even outer space before he finds a Barbamama at home and starts a family. This first edition of the enormously popular Barbapapa series is in About Fine condition in a Fine dust jacket. World Library Binding (but never in a library).
