Overview

Clumsy Smurf’s not quite himself after he mixes up the wrong potion!

In this 8x8 storybook based on the classic Smurfs, Clumsy Smurf is tired of not being allowed to help around Smurf Village because he’s so clumsy. He thinks that if he learns how to make magic potions like Papa Smurf, the other Smurfs might respect him more. Papa won’t let Clumsy be his apprentice, so Clumsy sneaks into the lab. When the potion Clumsy creates turns him into a green monster, his friends are afraid of him—and Clumsy realizes that being himself isn’t so bad. In fact, it’s pretty smurfy!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Enid Portnoy
Here are the Smurfs trying to share a non-scary Halloween story with young readers. The narration feels stiff but may encourage laughter on the part of Clumsy Smurf, who lives up to his name. The story reinforces the idea that Papa knows best. And that stealing is never a good idea, no matter the reason. The story is a mixture of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Hansel and Gretel, and even Jack and the Bean Stalk. Clumsy plays right into the evil wizard’s plans and therein lies the tension and conflict. However, readers should not fear, Clumsy Smurf learns his lesson the hard way but is saved by Papa and his friends coming to his rescue. The evil wizard illustrated in the story does not look too frightening. Drawings are bright and colorful and children will recognize the Smurfs immediately. All in all, it will be a good choice for Halloween. Reviewer: Enid Portnoy; Ages 4 to 7.
