`Asterix in Britain' is yet another delightful book in the Asterix series and if you are familiar with the other books you will know the general style and format of the book. Basically Asterix and his friend Obelix are recruited to help their British cousins fight the Romans and escort a barrel of magic potion back to Britain. It gets mislaid on the way and they have to track it down before the Romans do. This leads eventually to the usual ending with much Roman bashing and fighting. There is slightly more to the story than that, but you should read it yourself to see what unfolds. This has the typical play on words and pun jokes Asterix is famous for, as well as the wonderful touches in the animation that really bring the scenes to life. There are also numerous comments and jokes on British society and culture (warm beer, tea drinking, rugby matches, British cooking, British emotional reserve etc etc) and it is all very funny and tongue in cheek. If you a fan of Asterix you will know what to expect and this is as good as they come and if you are new to Asterix then you can't go far wrong than if you start here. Great animation, simple but fun story and more Gaulish adventures, what more could you ask for.
