If Orion Books had just found and published one of the "lost" Shakespeare plays...I would not have been more excited than when I learnt of the publication of 14 previously untranslated Asterix stories in a new book called ASTERIX AND THE CLASS ACT....Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames - Giles Coren, THE TIMES

One of the most appealing features of the Asterix books is their ingenious, twisting plotlines, filled with scheming villains and hapless fools....Asterix and the Class Act might appeal more to Asterix diehards than to general fans; but it is an entertaining addition to the canon - Toby Lichtig, TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

Asterix is a true hero of global proportions - COLCHESTER EVENING GAZETTE

Here's a chance to dip into some new fun with the roast boar-loving French action men - Marion McMullen, NUNEATON EVE TELEGRAPH

LIke all the best children's books, Asterix works on several levels. More than a footnote, this addition to the series is worthy of its lineage - EVERYTHING FRANCE

“Brilliant series”

Another generic review. The Asterix series was introduced to me by my father who loved them. He bought me various random omnibus editions over the years and then I picked up the individual books that were missing from... More
