Asterix in Switzerland

by Goscinny
Overall: 2 out of 5 stars

Personal Evaluation: I had a lot of trouble getting into this one. There are a lot of characters and I found the pictures extremely busy. There was one panel in particular in which I had to squint to make out the small character next to a larger one, because the background details were confusing the images. Jumping between storylines also was confusing to me. But again, these books are really popular so maybe kids are better at that than I am… There were also a few explanations of words in historical context, but I found the explanations were not helpful at all.

What might interest children: There is some humor and lots of adventure… other than that, I’m really not too sure why these are so popular.
