Win a complete set of Asterix books

7th October 2005 at 01:00
From his first appearance in 1961 to the newly published Asterix and the Falling Sky, the indomitable Gaul and his sidekick Obelix have survived all kinds of adventures to become classic comic-book heroes.

We have a full set of 33 Asterix books to give away, worth more than Pounds 230, if you can answer this question correctly. What is the name of the Druid who prepares the magic potion that gives Asterix and Obelix their superhuman strength?

Mark your answers birds or asterix and send them on a postcard to the TES address or by email to Remember to include your name and contact details. Entries close on October 13.
