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

Chief Vitalstatistix makes a rash bet with his brother-in-law, the infuriating show-off Homeopathix, whom he invites to dine on a stew seasoned with Caesar's laurel wreath. It is up to Aserix and Obelix, of course, to go to Rome and acquire the wreath.

Book 18 in the bestselling series.

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 OUT
