Barbapapa Series|巴巴爸爸故事系列*Simplified Chinese*age 1-6 岁
Author/ Illustrator: Annette Tison and Talus Taylor (Origin: France)
Barbapapa is both the title character, and name of the "species" of said character, of a series of children's books written in the 1970s by Annette Tison and Talus Taylor, who resided in Paris. The books were originally written in French (barbe à papa - literally "Daddy's beard" - is French for cotton candy or candy floss), and were later translated into more than 40 languages.
The main characters in the books are the Barbapapa family, who are most notable for their ability to transform into any shapes at will. In their native form, Barbapapas are blob-shaped, with a distinct head and arms, but no legs. Male Barbapapas have rounder bottoms, whereas female Barbapapas have a more slender form. Each Barbapapa can adopt any form they choose, but they remain easily identifiable by always retaining their faces and their distinctive colour.
