When someone leaves a little boy in a basket outside Asterix and Obelix’s hut, it’s two Gauls and a baby! Though Asterix and Obelix have more experience whopping legionnaires than diapering infants, they do their best. Also new to childcare: the sneaky Prefect of Gaul, Crismus Cactus, who’s masquerading as a nursemaid. Why do the Romans want this baby? And, what plot is the treacherous Brutus hatching against Caesar? Asterix must find out.
