Asterix and the Laurel Wreath (Asterix) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chief Vitalstatistix rashly invites his brother-in-law to dine of a stew seasoned with Caesar's laurel wreath, so Asterix and Obelix must go to Rome to fetch those laurels. Hoping to get access to Caesar, they sell themselves as slaves - but can they do a deal with the corrupt Goldendelicius to swap the laurels for parsley? If so, it will be their own Roman triumph.

Synopsis:

Chief Vitalstatistix has rashly bet his brother-in-law, the infuriating show-off Homeopathix, that he can get hold of Caesar's laurel wreath to season a stew. Of course, now it's up to Asterix and Obelix to go to Rome, find the wreath, and bring it back for the promised dinner. Can they save Vitalstatistix's honor?
