I actually got this book I purchased at a yard sale. The title says The Pirates but it's about a lot more than that it's more of a general history book than a pirate topic book.
Not sure why it has that title but I'm enjoying it when the house occasionally loses power for a short period of time I'll grab a flashlight and start reading it again where I left off.
Yup, Asterix, Obelix, and a druid who keeps changing his name--some of the comics call him Getafix (heh) and others call him Panoramix. I'm guessing all the names that aren't historical figures are gonna be pun-tastic.
