Omnibus or individual stories...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Asterix Omnibus 2: Asterix the Gladiator, Asterix and the Banquet, Asterix and Cleopatra (Paperback)
... that was the question vexing me when deciding to purchase Asterix for my 8 year old. He has read quite a few already and i was very unsure whether 3 books in one would be too unwieldy to read easily.
However I was very pleased with the first two volumes I decided to buy having seen the price of individual stories and despite having read one of the 3 books in the omnibus he was delighted to have some new ones - also like the picture on the spine that really makes you want to buy the rest of the set. Marketing ploy maybe but fun...
Of course Asterix and Obelix are classic and through them my 8 year old is now learning a bit of "Latin" and has even got the Minimus book as a start. Plus he is an expert on Romans - so history is (for him) just fun, fun, fun!
