Gaul was divided into three parts. No, four parts - for one small village of indomitable Gauls still held out against the Roman invaders.

The hero Vercingetorix once defeated Julius Caesar near Gergovia in the Arvernian country. Although the tables were turned later at the battle of Alesia, the Gauls remember Gergovia as a glorious victory. Years later, Caesar plans to parade with Vercingetorix's shield - but where can it be The Romans and the Gauls race to find it.

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
