Review

A brilliant addition to the Asterix family by Jean-Yves Ferri and illustrated by Didier Conrad. Perfect for children and adults alike, it's a book which I have no doubt will have you clutching your sides with laughter as you follow Asterix and Obelix on their latest adventure. (The Bookbag)

An energetic story with some very bad/good jokes, and just enough silly Roman-bashing, it's just the sort of thing we Asterix fans love (THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)

Asterix is a series which takes some liberties with historical fact, using the two thousand year gap between the time of the Roman Empire and the present day to great comic effect (Aberdeen Press & Journal)

Didier Conrad's illustrations are absolutely fantastic and guarantee a lovely continuity of the series, especially if you're an Asterix fan. I thought the core of the story was brilliant. (School Librarian)

Following in the footsteps of Goscinny and Uderzo, this is just as good as the originals and a delight to have a new Asterix story. The storyline is as funny as ever and the illustrations by Didier Conrad are spot on (Parents In Touch)

Fast paced and extremely cheeky and funny with some brilliant digs and in-jokes about everything from politics to the press. (Read It Daddy)

The artwork is very polished and dynamic. It looks just as good as any previous Asterix book, and one would have to be a real aficionado to tell it apart from Albert Uderzo's work. As for the writing, the story is on a par with many of the better books [...] it would appear that Asterix and Obelix will be entertaining children and adults for many, many years to come. (Slings and Arrows Graphic Novel Guide)

I would recommend this story to adventure fans everywhere. (The Guardian Children's Books Young Reviewers)

The humour, married with the most intricate of details tells the 'real' story of Julius Caesar's defeat at the hands of the Gauls. Asterix, that feisty little Gaul, has transcended the ages! (The Best New Children's Books Guide)

A real treat ... the new books will appeal to young readers, for whom it will be, hopefully, just the beginning (School Librarian)

Book Description

5.0 out of 5 stars Read on how Cessar writes a book
By Santosh Raina on 16 March 2021
Reviewed by my 9 year old son:

I loved the book especially the jokes in it .I like the joke in which 3 legionaries get attacked by asterix and one legionary tells to copy him by saying "coo coo coo" and after being attacked, another legionary continues to say "coo" almost till the end. The first time i read the book it was hard to understand but after reading it very carefully i got to know that Julius Caesar had published a new book.
I love the asterix series i like dogmatix the dog he is very small but very brave and strong.

I have read 4 to 5 books in this series.
I recomend you buying all the books.
