Publisher Comments:

"Asterix, the hero of more than 30 comic stories...is back...wit, humane insights, and physical antics allow readers to join the fun...has cross-generational appeal..."-"-Booklist

With over 300 million copies sold worldwide, the Asterix books are a global sensation. (They've sold even more than Harry Potter!) Set in 50 BC, 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...There's no gladiator that can match Asterix's power!
