Asterix and the Magic Carpet (Asterix)by Albert Uderzo
Synopses & Reviews
The wonderful little village where Asterix and Obelix live has only one drawback: its bard is the worst musician in the entire ancient world. Whenever Cacofonix strikes up a tune, his singing sends the sun behind the clouds and causes the rain to fall. Sometimes, though, that "talent" can come in mighty handy. Cacofonix's golden moment arrives when a fakir flies in on a magic carpet asking for help. It seems that his kingdom is suffering from a terrible drought and only the sacrifice of their princess, Orinjade, can end it. Now, it's up to the bard to lift his voice in song, bring the rains, and save the lovely Orinjade--and for once his musical gifts will be fully appreciated!
