Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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!

Synopsis:

In the distant Eastern kingdom of Rajah Watzit, the guru Hoodunnit is threatening to end a terrible drought by sacrificing the lovely Princess Orinjade. The fakir Watziznehm arrives by flying carpet to ask the Gauls for help - and just for once, Cacofonix can feel that his talents are appreciated.

Synopsis:

Rejoice: the long-awaited next Asterix album has finally arrivedand#8212;written and illustrated by a brand-new team! And the hysterical historical character's next epic adventure takes place in Scotland, where he meets the Picts: fearsome warriors whose name literally means and#8220;painted men.and#8221; As always, Asterix's millions of fans will find plenty of fun, action, and humor to delight them.
