Title: The Strange Awakening of Lazy Smurf by Peyo

Notable: Book #17 in The Smurfs Graphic Novels series


In the main story, the rest of the Smurfs play a practical joke on Lazy Smurf when he’s caught sleeping while the rest of them are working.  The other Smurfs put on costumes and makeup to look old, and stage the town to look like it’s in a state of decay.  When Lazy wakes up, he thinks he’s been sleeping for many years and now it’s his job to take care of all the aging Smurfs.  Includes “The Strange Awakening of Lazy Smurf,” “Gargamel and his Nephews,” “Gargamel’s Twin,” “The Ogre and the Smurfs,” “Disco Smurf,” and “Surfing Smurf.”

My thoughts:

My favorite stories from this book are the ones featuring Gargamel’s family.  His brother ends up being a really nice guy who befriends the Smurfs on his way to visit Gargamel.  The story with his nephews is one of my favorite Smurf stories.  The young boys get lost in the woods and the Smurfs take them in and care for them until they can be returned to their uncle.  The boys know they’ll get in trouble if their uncle finds out they’ve been with the Smurfs and haven’t helped him in his quest to catch the Smurfs.  So they devise a plan to give Gargamel a false map to the Smurf village so that they can escape and return home.  His nephews look hilarious with their little, round, bald heads!

I recommend The Strange Awakening of Lazy Smurf to Smurf aficionados.
