The first Asterix book I ever read, and still one of my favourites. As a youngster I didn't quite get the contemporary resonance of the story (a nice commentary on property development and its associated scandals, highly topical at the time of writing, and still relevant today), but its wit and panache are classic Goscinny. My kids love it too.

A slight departure from the norm for a deeper tale with a warning for our modern world. This is an environmentalist story about the dangers of over uburnanisation of areas of natural charm and beauty. The finding of uprooted trees, much to Dogmatix's horror, is a prelude to a massive construction of holiday apartments (in the latest classical style) on the villagers' doorstep. Asterix and Getafix use their wits to put a stop to this rural vandalism. An interesting story this one and a nice change, and there are still plenty of legionaries to bash. Possibly the most overtly French of all the books and definitely the most political.

Thirty or so years after my Mum and Dad first bought their children Asterix and Obelix books all three of us keep returning to them. They are extraordinary accomplishments; beautifully drawn and coloured and wittily written with slap stick guffaws and giggle-groaning puns. Everybody should own all Asterix books. I'll lob in a similar suggestion on behalf of Tintin, Judge Dredd and Charlie's War; all classics too - 'By Toutatis!'
