The purple Smurf runs amok around the Smurf Village biting other Smurfs on the tail, causing them to turn purple and act crazy too! Soon there are more purple Smurfs than blue Smurfs in the village. It's up to Papa Smurf to find a cure and save Smurf Village before all of the Smurfs lose their minds for good!

            This wonderful Smurf's comic book contains three fascinating stories. 1. A Smurf gets bitten by a Bzz bee and turns purple. Will Papa Smurf save the village before they all turn purple? 2. Papa Smurf sends two surfs out to get walnuts. One of the smurfs proclaims he wants to become a flying surf. But in order to do so, he uses all the other smurfs' items. Will he fly, or will he be punished by the villagers whose items he stole? 3. Smurf insists it is too noisy in his house. He decides to move to a house in the woods. Little does he know, the woods are just as noisy. Will he stay, or will he move out?

                  I love this book. A fly bites smurfs and they turn into purple color. Very funny story. All purple smurfs do funny and crazy things. Papa smurf saves the village. Very interesting for kids.

                    Smurf characters are very adorable! I liked stories where when trouble arises(the purple smurf), it ends up with a happy ending( it was cured) xp
