Synopsis

Asterix Omnibus Asterix in Switzerland, The Mansions of the Gods, Asterix & the Laurel Wreath by Goscinny

This special collectors' edition features books sixteen to eighteen in one fabulous volume. In ASTERIX IN SWITZERLAND, a poisoning means Asterix and Obelix must go to Helvetia for an antidote. Can they overcome cuckoo hourglasses, yodelling and holes in the cheese? A housing estate lies at the heart of Caesar's new plan to crush the Gauls in THE MANSIONS OF THE GODS. Will the villagers be tempted by the chance to make money when the Roman tenants move in? In ASTERIX AND THE LAUREL WREATH, Chief Vitalstatistix wants a stew seasoned with Caesar's laurel wreath. Asterix and Obelix must fetch the wreath, but will their plan end in disaster or their own Roman triumph? There is no better way to enjoy the antics of our indomitable hero and his friends.
