The Smurfs The Smurf Versus Smurf by Peyo, Peyo, Yvan Delporte


The Smurfs The Smurf Versus Smurf by Peyo, Peyo, Yvan Delporte

The Smurfs always seem to get into trouble when Papa Smurf is not around. While Papa Smurf works in his laboratory, two Smurfs begin arguing about the proper use of the word smurf. Smurfs that live in the northern part of the village use it as a verb (as in bottle smurfer ), while the southerners use it as a noun (as in smurf opener ). Without Papa Smurf around to calm things down, the argument quickly escalates until the northern and southern smurfs divide themselves along the village lines! With the southern Smurfs set to perform their play Little Smurf Riding Hood for the northern Smurfs, it looks like the language disagreement is going to get worse before it gets better!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
