When a strange fly bites one of the Smurfs, a full-on epidemic develops in the Smurf village! After being bit, a Smurf turns purple, his vocabulary is reduced to one word (GNAP!), and he goes berserk! 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!

Love it.

its boring its about a smurf who turns purple

This three-in-one book is very funny. In 'The Purple Smurfs' is about a smurf that gets bitten by a Bzz fly. Then, he bites a smurf who bites a smurf and it just keeps going. Papa smurf and the remaining 5 smurfs-including papa smurf-have to find a way to stop the purple smurfs before it's too late. In the second story, "The Flying Smurf', a smurf wants to fly, but no matter what he tries, something happens that stops him from flying. Maybe he'll try sailing instead. In the third story, 'A Smurf's Neighbors' a smurf moves to the forrest, but that's not much better than his old house-plus there's a squirrel who keeps stealing his food and a mosquito keeps biting him. Maybe he'll move back to the village. I loved it!

in the story its like once the smurf gets a bite from the insects they turn purple and became evil. then papa had to make a potion but it didn't work until the end when he became purple too

The epidemic has began. The strange disease caused by the bite of a fly turns a few Smurfs purple. Their vocabulary than reduces to the word "gnap" and they go around biting the others on the tail and turning them purple to. It is now up to Papa Smurf to defeat the disease before it is too late.

This book is great! Me and my sister could not stop laughing!

This book is a must read for anyone who loves fantasy stories. I love the way that the other smurfs help each other out! Plus, the are sooooooooo cute!
