diminished, we are starved’

Asterix & Obelix's Birthday: The Golden Book
by Rene Goscinny and Albert Uderzo
Age Range: 9-11
The village decide to throw a party for Asterix and Obelix as they both share the same birthday. Various ideas of how to celebrate the day are put forward and characters from past stories re-appear to join in. However, the Romans are never far away as even Julius Caesar makes a quick appearance at the end in an attempt to ruin the celebrations with a laxative wine!
Asterix and the Obelix’s Birthday: The Golden Book is designed and written by Albert Uderzo. It is not a whole story, but a succession of short stories especially created for the 50th anniversary of Asterix in 2009 and includes stories that were created jointly with René Goscinny.
