In this special collectors' edition, three great Asterix albums are collected in one fabulous volume for the first time ever. In ASTERIX AND THE ACTRESS, Asterix and Obelix celebrate their joint birthday party - and some surprise guests have been invitied! ASTERIX AND THE CLASS ACT contains 14 stories, including tales of the day Asterix and Obelix were born (in the middle of a village fist fight). In ASTERIX AND THE FALLING SKY, the Gauls' one fear - that the sky may fall on their heads - looks like it might come true...There is no better way to enjoy the antics of our indomitable hero and his friends.

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 34 Asterix albums.
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"
