Cacofonix's tuneless singing always makes it rain - which is just what they want in Rajah Watzit's distant Eastern kingdom. The guru Hoodunnit has threatened to end a terrible drought by sacrificing lovely Princess Orinjade. Can the Gauls, flown in on the fakir Watziznehm's magic carpet, rescue her? The bard's finest hour has come.

Five out of ten. CBR format.

Cacofonix is a terrible bard but he does seem to influence the weather. Rain is needed in a far Eastern Kingdom, can Cacofonix help?

Asterix and the Magic Carpet, by Goscinny and Uderzo[skipping preliminaries as most people know the characters]In this adventure, the great Fakir Watziznehm has come to Gaul seeking Cacofonix. India is in a serious drought. Hoodunnit wants control of the kingdom, and has arranged for Orinjade to be executed if it doesn't rain within 1001 hours. So Asterix and Obelix escort Cacofonix to India...
