If there's anyone who can simply transcend age altogether it's my first choice, the little Gaulish warrior called Asterix ... This latest album comes to us from a new writer-illustrator team ... and despite the burden of expectations they don't disappoint ... It's a delight. And while the creative team in France has changed, we can be grateful that the English version remains in the incomparably skilled hands of Anthea Bell, who's translated the books with wit and energy since the very beginning―INDEPENDENT
There are simple pleasures here for long-time fans and new recruits. The handover from Uderzo to the new duo shows few obvious joins. We are back with the characters we got to know and cherish. And, as a writer, the good news for me is that the Picts apparently respect their bards more than the Gauls do. It must be so - Asterix himself says it on page 29, by Toutatis!―GUARDIAN
Just about every aspect of Caledonian life is gently lampooned - Nessie, whisky, kilts, caber tossing - in this loving continuation of the series, which cleaves so faithfully to the template that you would hardly know it was the work of others―FINANCIAL TIMES
