Read full description of the books Asterix in Spain:‘A fish, A fish, My kingdom for a fish!’
The smashing tales of Asterix & his mighty friend Obelix continues in ‘Asterix in Spain’, with the usual dosage of Roman bashing, mighty feasts and thrilling adventures as they travel from their village in Gaul to Spain entrusted with an important mission.
The plot begins in Spain where Julius Caesar is challenged by a tiny village of defiant Iberian fighters under ‘Huevos Y Bacon’. Caesar decides to pay their village a personal visit and while traveling there with his legionaries is halted by a very small mischievous & brave kid named ‘Pepe’, who is the son of the resistance leader. Caesar has his men kidnap ‘Pepe’ to be used as a bargaining chip against the Iberians. ‘Pepe’ is send with an escort of Roman soldiers to Gaul for safekeeping.
The party of roman soldiers led by ‘Spurius Brontosaurus’ escorting ‘Pepe’ to a garrison in Gaul comes across Asterix, Obelix & Dogmatix; and gets bashed by Obelix. Asterix & Obelix takes the kid to their village and soon finds that he is a number one mischief maker. With the help of soldiers from the local garrison Spurius Brontosaurus makes an attempt to recapture ‘Pepe’ from the village of the Gauls and gets regally bashed up. While Pepe is staying at the village readers get introduced to the village fishmonger ‘Unhygienix’ for the first time in the series and are made spectators to a royal rumble of a fish fight among the villagers.
Pepe with his mischief and his love for the ballads sung by Cacofonix at unholy hours soon becomes a ‘holy terror’ for the villagers and they decide to safely reunite him with his father in Spain. Asterix & Obelix are entrusted with this mission and they along with Pepe and Dogmatix starts for a journey filled with one adventure after another until they safely reunite Pepe with his father.
Asterix & Obelix fighting with some pirates, meeting with ‘Don Quixote & Sancho Panza’, having a blast with some gypsies, Asterix inventing modern day bull-fighting after getting thrown in to the Roman Circus and Obelix barreling through a wall of roman soldiers besieging Pepe’s village are some of the cherishing memories of this journey.
Read in the 90s during my high school vacation; just like the other books in the series, I thoroughly enjoyed Asterix & his gang’s Spanish Adventure.
