Synopsis

Omnibus Asterix and the Big Fight, Asterix in Britain, Asterix and the Normans by Rene Goscinny

In this special collectors' edition, books seven to nine are brought together in one fabulous volume. In ASTERIX AND THE BIG FIGHT, Chief Cassius Ceramix has gone over to the Roman enemy. The fight for control of the village between Vitalstatistix and his rival is bound to be a knockout. Asterix and Obelix help one little ancient British village hold out against the Roman invaders in ASTERIX IN BRITAIN. Our heroes must face fog, rain, warm beer and boiled boar with mint sauce. In ASTERIX AND THE NORMANS, can Asterix and his friends teach the Normans the meaning of fear? There is no better way to enjoy the antics of our indomitable hero and his friends.

Reviews

A cartoon drawn with such supreme artistry, and a text layered with such glorious wordplay, satire and historical and political allusion that no reader should ever feel like they've outgrown it.--TIME OUT

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

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.
