In ancient Rome, the slaves are rebelling—and they’ve even stolen Julius Caesar’s own warship, the finest in the Roman navy. Under the heroic leadership of Spartakis, the former galley slaves make for the small town where Caesar’s old enemies Asterix and Obelix live. Now everyone must sail to the wonderful continent of Atlantis. But, the Romans are on the ocean blue, too...and the battles are about to come fast and furiously.

Comments about Asterix and Obelix All at Sea:
I purchased these for my 10 year old son at his request. I loved reading them as a child( a number of years ago now) and now he loves reading them. Will purchase more of the series for him, and may read them again myself.
The Asterix books represent the very summit of our achievement as a literary race. In Asterix one finds all of human life. The fact that the books were written originally in French is no matter. I have read them all in many languages and, like all great literature, they are best in English. Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames. THE TIMES"
