Set in 50 B.C., these hysterical historical tales follow the adventures of Asterix and his pals in the days of the Roman Empire. Normally, Asterix is concerned about protecting his town from the legionaries, but here a surprise birthday party is on his mind. Meanwhile, two old friends are about to turn up again. Great for leading high-school students into discussion of history and literary devices.”Booklist.
