Asterix Omnibus 1 Asterix the Gaul, Asterix and the Golden Sickle, Asterix and the Goths by Rene Goscinny


Asterix Omnibus 1 Asterix the Gaul, Asterix and the Golden Sickle, Asterix and the Goths by Rene Goscinny

In this special collectors' edition, the first three Asterix stories are collected in one fabulous volume. In ASTERIX THE GAUL, we join Asterix, Obleix and co as they try to defend one small village in Gaul from the mighty legionaires of Rome who surround them. Disaster strikes the Gaulish village in ASTERIX AND THE GOLDEN SICKLE, as Getafix the druid has broken his golden sickle which means no more magic potion. In ASTERIX AND THE GOTHS, Getafix is kidnapped by the Goths so Asterix and Obelix have to ride to the rescue. There is no better way to enjoy the antics of our indomitable hero and his friends.


The Asterix books represent the very summit of our achievement as a literary race. In Asterix one finds all of human life. The fact that the books were written originally in French is no matter. I have read them all in many languages and, like all great literature, they are best in English. Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames. THE TIMES

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
