Title: The Smurfs and the Egg by Peyo
Notable: Book #5 in The Smurfs Graphic Novels series
In this book, the Smurfs discover a magic egg, Gargamel becomes a Smurf, and a freak accident results in a new Smurf. Includes “The Smurfs and the Egg,” “The Fake Smurf,” and “The Hundredth Smurf.”
In the first story, the Smurfs want to bake a cake but they need to find an egg. They go through all kinds of shenanigans to get one and then when it gets back to the village, they discover that it’s a magic egg that will grant them any wish. The Smurfs wish for all kinds of crazy things until Papa Smurf sees the mayhem it’s causing and wishes everything back to normal.
In “The Fake Smurf,” Gargamel makes a potion to turn himself into a Smurf to infiltrate the village. He follows another Smurf back to the village and quietly tries to sabotage everybody else. As with most of his plans, this one fails and Gargamel changes himself back to try and capture the Smurfs. His potion returns him to the right shape, but not the right size — he’s a tiny Gargamel!
I recommend The Smurfs and the Egg to Smurf fans.
