The ninth album chronicling the much-loved adventures of Asterix and friends.

A Norman invasion of the Gaulish village! But only trendy teenager Justforkix, visiting from Lutetia, fears them, for the Gauls have their magic potion.

Another secret weapon is brought into play...and at long last the bard Cacofonix wins the appreciation due to him.
