Publisher's Description

What's better than an Asterix story? Three in one volume! Asterix and Obelix travel to Helvetia for a rare flower in Asterix in Switzerland. In The Mansions of the Gods, our heroes' humble village is endangered  . . .  by a trendy Roman architect. Then it's off to Rome, where Asterix and Obelix must steal one of Caesar's most prized possessions in Asterix and the Laurel Wreath!

Editorial Reviews

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.—THE TIMES
