    Asterix is one of the best warriors in the only Gaulish village that still holds out against the Roman Empire (with the help of the Druids magical potions wich gives you super human strength). These books are all really funny and interesting for children of all ages!!??

    I think this is a great book with two brilliant and magical characters who venture out into the world solving problems ;beating up Romans;protecting their little village and most importantly eating roast boar. Follow them in their adventures and have fun

    I love Astrix I have all the books at home

    it’s just hilarious how the Romans could conquer so many countries and they can’t even take over a small village.It’s quite pleasant to read the plans of both the gaul’s and Romans

  21. rhenry says:

    I loved this book. I like when Asterix fights Romans because I don’t like the Romans. I dressed up as Asterix for World Book Day. I like all the Asterix and Obelix books but Asterix and the Falling Sky is the best.

  22. egeach says:

    I loved the book asterix because it is very funny and gives you information on the romans and the Gauls.Every single page will give you a laugh it is one of the best comics I’ve read in a while.

  23. Mr Milne says:

    Wonderful recurring jokes and puns and lots of national stereotypes and caricatures – the Asterix books are great fun but not too politically correct. Asterix the Gaul is the first of the series of more than 30 comics – I think that we’ve got them all on the library bus. I don’t feel feel that I know the rest of the series that well (as a child, I always remember picking up a Tintin book before Asterix) and so look forward to reading them all through as soon as possible!
