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
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.
