Description

A woman bard in Ancient Gaul? A shocking idea, but that's what the Gauls get when the mothers in Asterix's village hire Bravura to teach their children. Although she, Asterix and Obelix are unlikely allies, between them they fight back against Julius Caesar's secret weapon. What can that weapon be? And how can even Cacofonix help?show more

Review quote

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. I have read them all in many languages and, like all great literature, they are best in English. Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames.--THE TIMES A cartoon drawn with such supreme artistry, and a text layered with such glorious wordplay, satire and historical and political allusion that no reader should ever feel like they've outgrown it.--TIME OUTshow more
