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.
Jean-Yves Ferri and Didier Conrad began writing and illustrating Asterix in 2013 with Asterix and The Picts. There have now been 37 albums.
This is the 37th book in the series, and the third to be written by Jean-Yves Ferri and illustrated by Didier Conrad; the transition to new author/illustrator is seamless with all the best points of the originals faithfully reproduced. [...] Brilliantly written and illustrated; a worthy successor. * Parents in Touch * A real treat ... the new books will appeal to young readers, for whom it will be, hopefully, just the beginning * School Librarian on Asterix and the Missing Scroll * Fast paced and extremely cheeky and funny with some brilliant digs and in-jokes about everything from politics to the press. * Read It Daddy on Asterix and the Missing Scroll * An energetic story with some very bad/good jokes, and just enough silly Roman-bashing, it's just the sort of thing we Asterix fans love * THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY on Asterix and the Missing Scroll *
