Asterix: Asterix and The Picts

ebook / ISBN-13: 9781444011685

Price: £7.99

When Asterix and Obelix rescue a mysterious Pict named MacAroon, they must journey to Caledonia, now Scotland, to return him to his lady love, Camomilla, the adopted daughter of the old king. However, the treacherous chieftain, MacCabeus, plans to marry her and claim the throne – with the help of the Romans!

What with caber-tossing, bagpipes, malted water and an enormous otter in the loch, can the Gauls reunite MacAroon and Camomilla and enjoy some Roman-bashing along the way?

Reviews

This book was very very funny!!!
Matthew, aged 8, Anorak
It's a delight
THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
Appealing to all age groups, the latest Asterix book is a return to form
The Guardian
A reminder of just what a timeless, funny, readable and visually rewarding character Asterix is -- whatever your age
Parent Dish
A delightful Scots version of the most recent Asterix tale. This translation has a twist, however, with Asterix and Obelix speaking Glaswegian, the Picts speak in Doric and the Romans in Dundonian Scots. Great fun.
Scotland Now
There was always joy in the humour and this Scots-translated story is one of the best. Its full of the usual brilliant rammies and misadventures and Fitt has a lot of fun with the translation, adapting every joke to fit and even employing different local Scots dialects for different characters
