Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Set in 50 B.C., these hysterical historical tales follow the adventures of Asterix and his pals in the days of the Roman Empire. Normally, he's concerned about protecting his town from the legionnaires (with the help of a magic potion), but here something else is on his mind: his surprise birthday party! Meanwhile, two old friends are about to turn up again...and they're up to something interesting. "...great for leading high-school students into discussion of history and literary devices."--Booklist.

Synopsis:

Following on the success of "Asterix and Obelix", this is the first new Asterix adventure for five years.

Synopsis:

Asterix and Obelix are celebrating their joint birthday party back in the Gaulish village - and some surprise guests have been invited! Meanwhile, Julius Caesar has to deal with his old enemy Pompey, who is looking for supporters among the legions stationed in Gaul. And just what what part do two old friends play in the story - Tremensdelirius, from ASTERIX AND CAESAR'S GIFT, and the lovely Panacea, first encountered in ASTERINX AND THE LEGIONARY? After many exciting adventures, all is finally revealed...

Synopsis:

The first new "Asterix" for five years - the title and content are a heavily-guarded secret until the worldwide publication date of 15th March. Full colour.
