To Obelix’s delight, a great party has been arranged, and everyone’s invited. And we mean everyone. Get ready to journey back in time as you meet all the characters you love in this book.

As the name suggests both astreix and obelix are fun, loving and brave.If you have a sense of humor which needs a little nudge, this is the book. Its hilarious and will keep you entranced. loved it as a kid and all through my adult life., I do recommend it to kids and adults alike. Read and enjoy.

Really Boring..Do not buyReading the description, I felt that it was a good book with a story. But sadly disappointed as there is no story except all want to give Asterix and Obelix a Happy Birthday wish. If only a preview had been given, I would have missed this book.

great book worth waiting forthis is the 34th and the last book of asterix and obelix series. this book was released on account of celebrating asterix's 50th anniversary. the 35th book is yet to be released. the asterix series is one that must be read by everyone. it is the greatest adventure/comedy comic series ever and is still being sold in the market as it still has much attention among the readers.
