When someone leaves a little boy in a basket outside Asterix and Obelix's hut, it's two Gauls and a baby! Though Asterix and Obelix have more experience whopping legionnaires than diapering infants, they do their best. Also new to childcare: the sneaky Prefect of Gaul, Crismus Cactus, who's masquerading as a nursemaid. Why do the Romans want this baby? And, what plot is the treacherous Brutus hatching against Caesar? Asterix must find out.

Great comic! Again. I knew the early stories written by Goscinny (until "Asterix in Belgium") were VERY funny, but wasn't sure about the material created later by Uderzo alone. Now that I've bought all the latter books I'm very happy with them too. Read full review
