9780752846583: Asterix and the Actress

Set in 50 B.C., these hysterical historical tales follow the adventures of Asterix and his pals in the days of the Roman Empire. Normally, he’s concerned about protecting his town from the legionnaires (with the help of a magic potion), but here something else is on his mind: his surprise birthday party! Meanwhile, two old friends are about to turn up again...and they’re up to something interesting. “Great for leading high-school students into discussion of history and literary devices.”—Booklist

About the Author:

Rene Goscinny was born in Paris in 1926, and spent most of his childhood in Argentina, before eventually moving to Paris in 1951. He died in 1977. Albert Uderzo was born in 1927 in a small village in Marne, France. He met Rene Goscinny in 1951 and on 29 October 1959 their most famous creation, Asterix, made his first appearance on page 20 of Pilote. ASTERIX THE GAUL, their first album, was published in 1961 and there have now been 35 Asterix albums.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4-7. Asterix, the hero of more than 30 comic stories set in 50 B.C. Gaul, is back here in his first new graphic novel adventure in five years. Uderzo's customary wit, humane insights, and silly physical antics allow readers new to the series to join the fun as Asterix and the oversized Obelix celebrate their mutual birthday, get tricked by Pompey's pretend Panacea, and rescue their fathers from a Roman prison. Translated from the French with a liberal combination of Latin puns and contemporary social riffs--including a reference to hitching a ride in an HGV (Heavy Gaulish Vehicle)--the story has cross-generational appeal. The illustrations are, as expected, ridiculous cartoons; this includes the one-panel representation of an African sailor, as well as the images of the heroes, their families, and the enemy Romans. In addition to being fun for middle-readers, this will be great for leading high-school students into discussion of history and literary devices. Francisca Goldsmith
