Asterix in Britain

by Albert Uderzo, René Goscinny

ORION PUBLISHING GROUP | May 20, 2004 | Trade Paperback

Asterix in Britain is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from can't go wrong with it he book was smaller than I expected(after all, a movie was made that was based on it), but, after all, it is a comic book and there is plenty of content in it(a picture is worth half a page from a normal book). Anyway, a thing worth bying.

About the Author

Rene Goscinny was born in Paris in 1926, and spent most of his childhood in Argentina, before eventually moving to Paris in 1951. He died in 1977. Albert Uderzo was born in 1927 in a small village in Marne, France. He met Rene Goscinny in 1951 and on 29 October 1959 their most famous creation, Asterix, made his first appearance on page 20 of Pilote. ASTERIX THE GAUL, their first album, was published in 1961 and there have now been 35 Asterix albums.

Editorial Reviews

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
