The first "Asterix and Obelix" book I've seen since the death of writer Rene Goscinny. Here, illustrator Albert Uderzo takes over the writing chores, and I never would have noticed a change. Not that that is a good thing; these stories, of a village of indomitable Gauls holding out against the Roman Empire with the aid of a magic potion that beats Popeye's spinach all hollow, follow a formula that got old fast. They never live up to the potential of the premise and Uderzo's serviceably attractive artwork. The same holds here, but I've learned not to expect too much of the series, and thus can enjoy a pleasantly diverting 20 minutes or so reading a decent childrens' series that could be so much better.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0752846574, Hardcover)

Set in 50 B.C., these hysterical historical tales follow the adventures of Asterix and his pals in the days of the Roman Empire. Normally, he's concerned about protecting his town from the legionnaires (with the help of a magic potion), but here something else is on his mind: his surprise birthday party! Meanwhile, two old friends are about to turn up again...and they're up to something interesting. "...great for leading high-school students into discussion of history and literary devices."--Booklist.
