Album 17

By René Goscinny
Illustrated by Albert Uderzo

  • Hardback
  • £10.99

The 17th album chronicling the much-loved adventures of Asterix and friends.

Why not infiltrate the little Gaulish village by building a modern housing estate? That's the plan thought up by trendy Roman architect Squaronthehypotenus to help Caesar crush the indomitable Gauls. Will the villagers be tempted by the chance of making money when the first Roman tenants move in? And what about the Gauls' secret weapon. Roll up to see the Roman remains!
