Synopsis

Asterix in Britain by Rene Goscinny

One little ancient British village still holds out against the Roman invaders. Asterix and Obelix are invited to help. They must face fog, rain, warm beer and boiled boar with mint sauce, but they soon have Governor Encyclopaedicus Britannicus's Romans declining and falling. Until a wild race for a barrel of magic potion lands them in the drink. It's not quite cricket - how about a nice cup of hot water, though? Or even the first ever tea-party?

Reviews

A great comic series proving that children's literature isn't limited to prose. Time Out It may be more than 50 years old, but it's still very funny The Week Junior
