Description

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.

Publisher Review

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 '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'--Giles Coren, THE TIMES
