"A Child Among The Smurfs", which is this story's English title translation, is another fun Smurfs comic book story from Studio Peyo that's worthy of a Papercutz translation. Here the Smurfs are visited by the mean and terrible little brat Jeanty, who gives his uncle Adalbert Lebon all sorts of trouble and also makes trouble for the Smurfs until Papa Smurf gets Jeanty to behave himself so he can figure out how to turn Jeanty around behavior-wise. Of course, Gargamel's presence doesn't make things any easier, as Jeanty finds himself interested in becoming a wizard and, since Papa Smurf refuses to teach the young boy magic, he hopes that the main enemy of the Smurfs might take him under his wing. (Important note is that Gargamel's apprentice Scruple appears mostly in the cartoon show, and unlike Jeanty was ingloriously dumped on Gargamel, who basically regrets ever having to deal with an apprentice.)
As usual, it has the same excellent cartoon artwork from Studio Peyo.
