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.
