Book Description

21 Oct 2004 Asterix (Orion Hardcover)
Quaestor Vexatius Sinustitis, who is about to expose the Roman governor's creative accountancy, has been poisoned. Can Getafix brew an antidote? Only if Asterix and Obelix find a certain flower for the druid's potion in Helvetia. What with bank safes, cuckoo hourglasses, yodelling and holes in the cheese, they're soon on a real Helvetian roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best in this superlative series 26 Aug 2007
If I was being critical I'd have to say this adventure is quite clearly the best of all the Asterix books. A tax collector is nobbled before he can get his hands on the money a greedy governor has been holding back from Rome. Cue the heroes Asterix and Obelix and Dogmatix on a classic adventure to the Alps, brilliantly drawn and written with warm friendly satire.
It is very nearly my own favourite, it is so good, but is just pipped by the ebullient Asterix and The Big Fight, for me. But I do realise Switzerland is better. This is a must for your children, whether they are bookish or not. It is a classic comicbook adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Asterix at his best 2 Oct 2006
Oh what a great way to spend time. Being an avid reader of Asterix I have to rate this one more highly than all the others. There is nothing that I don't like about this book. Brilliant from front to back covers.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Asterix albums 4 Jan 2013
This is one of the truly great Asterix albums. The puns are great, the plot hangs together and there so many delightfull little details that you only discover through rereading it time and time again. I would of course recommended everyone to get all the albums, but if you have to prioritize, this album should be high on the list!
