Editorial Reviews

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.

Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames.-THE TIMES
