Asterix and Obelix get into a right mess when the druid Getafix breaks his golden sickle so he can’t make any more of his magic brew. They travel to Lutetia (now Paris) to get him a brand new one, but they soon become tangled up with a criminal gang in the big city. Will Asterix and Obelix get the better of Navishtrix, Clovogarlix and the sickle-trafficking gang? Find out in this fantastic Asterix adventure now translated into Scots for the first time.
