Asterix and the Magic Carpet

by Albert Uderzo; trans. Anthea Bell & Derek Hockridge (Hodder, 1988)

Book cover: Asterix and the Magic Carpet by Uderzo.

A breezy if inconsequential adventure. Uderzo sends his heroes on a tour of the ancient world and depicts India for the first time, his illustrations proving less cluttered and less exotically Eastern than those of Jean Tabary’s Iznogoud (which gets a shout-out).
