About the Author:

Rene Goscinny was born in Paris in 1926, and spent most of his childhood in Argentina, before eventually moving to Paris in 1951. He died in 1977. Albert Uderzo was born in 1927 in a small village in Marne, France. He met Rene Goscinny in 1951 and on 29 October 1959 their most famous creation, Asterix, made his first appearance on page 20 of Pilote. Asterix the Gaul, their first album, was published in 1961 and there have now been 35 Asterix albums.

Review:

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 * Here's a chance to dip into some new fun with the roast boar-loving French action men -- Marion McMullen * NUNEATON EVE TELEGRAPH * Asterix is a true hero of global proportions * COLCHESTER EVENING GAZETTE * 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 * 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 *
