Fans of Asterix, rejoice: here are three fabulous Asterix stories in one book! In Asterix and the Cauldron, Asterix and Obelix will try anything--even robbery--to replace some mysteriously missing money. Asterix in Spain features the daring rescue of Chief Huevos y Bacon's son--but returning him to Spain is more than the Gauls have bargained for! And in Asterix and the Roman Agent, a sneaky spy named Tortuous Convolvulus tries to turn our heroes against each other!
