    Have you ever heard of the Smurfs? Well, the Smurfs are mythical

    Have you ever heard of the Smurfs? Well, the Smurfs are mythical creatures that are rarely seen. They are little blue men living in the mushrooms of a forest. The Smurfs were first created in a comic called Johan & Peewit where they made an appearance. The Smurfs got their own comic and have been around for 50 years now! This Anthology of Smurf stories from Papercutz are the original stories in order (plus the book, Johan & Peewit #9, where the Smurfs are introduced)! There are 6 translated (they were originally in French) stories/books in all (The Purple Smurfs, The Flying Smurf, The Smurf King, etc.). Papercutz has created a great Smurf collection of stories! In The Purple Smurfs, an evil Bzz fly starts a plague of evil purple Smurfs, in the Smurf King, the Smurfs accidentally elect a tyrant to lead them while Papa Smurf is gone, and much more!
    These were really great stories. I hadn’t read them before even though I am a fan of the Smurfs (I have read more modern stories). I also like the bonus “Johan and Peewit” story. I like how the Smurfs are in that book too and how Papa Smurf is the only Smurf that speaks Smurf and English. It is neat to see the history of how the Smurfs came about. I also like the artwork and how the Smurfs are drawn slightly different from what I’ve seen – they are more like gnomes and all look the same (except Papa Smurf). The colors were magnifique! I like the editor’s notes in the book and how they tell about how ideas came and things that had happened to make certain things the way they are now. I think this anthology is a must-read for Smurf Fans and young readers.
    **NOTE I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
