A baby boy is left in a basket outside Asterix's hut - who can have dumped the foundling there, and why? Child-care is something new to the Gaulish warriors, but Asterix and Obelix do their best, although they have had more practice in thumping Romans. Child-care is also new to Crismus Cactus, Prefect of Gaul, who finds himself masquerading as a Gaulish nursemaid. Why are the Romans are after the baby - and just what plot is the treacherous Brutus hatching against Julius Caesar? Even though the Gaulish village burns down, all ends well, with Caesar promising to rebuild it - and there's a great banquet on board Queen Cleopatra's galley.

Reviews

The Asterix books represent the very summit of our achievement as a literary race. In Asterix one finds all of human life. The fact that the books were written originally in French is no matter. I have read them all in many languages and, like all great literature, they are best in English. Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames.--THE TIMES A cartoon drawn with such supreme artistry, and a text layered with such glorious wordplay, satire and historical and political allusion that no reader should ever feel like they've outgrown it.--TIME OUT

Racing mad-cap through what is possibly the most unbeleivable and assinine of plots of all time this books leaves you shaking your head at the finish but still in stitches of laughter. It's just so out there that it's actually beleivabel and one of the most amusing reads that I'va had in a very long time.
