Asterix and the Missing Scroll, Ferri & Conrad
Asterix and The Missing Scroll - Jean-Yves Ferri,Didier Conrad

The second outing for the Ferri/Conrad partnership sees Julius Caeser write his famous book about the Gallic Wars! However, he's told to edit out the part about the Village of Indomitable Gauls and instead claim he conquered all of Gaul...certain parties are keen to preserve the real story. Typical shennanigans ensue, complete with long-suffering legionaries, arguments between villagers, pirates, violence, puns, irony and irreverence. The whimsy is dialled down compared even to its immediate predecessor, let alone the extravagances of Uderzo's authorial efforts but for me the best Asterix books take our heroes to a foreign country and take the mick out of the cultural stereotypes. Here the Gauls never leave, well, Gaul. Still, it's an at least averagely good entry in the series and that average is pretty high quality!

Life is a Twice Written Scroll

Kind of a Butterfly Effect story, where Draco keeps trying to change what happened. Not bad, but not amazing either. It was never really explained HOW Draco was managing to change history, which I didn't like.

The Secret Scroll
The Secret Scroll - Lynne Ewing Just as remembered from the first time I read this book, Catty and her story are my favorites. I was more into this story than I was into the previous three.

Catty is a very unique and fun girl who has no memory from before the day when her adoptive mother found her walking alone in the middle of a desert on the highway. Now, about ten years later, she receives a call that her birth mother has died and she needs to take care of the remains. This event flips Catty's world upside down as she finally has some clue as to her past.

Her adventure from then on was pretty fun to unravel. However, I was again frustrated with some of the writing. There was a little too much description of what everyone is wearing, but it wasn't as bad as the previous books. The friends would still meet up and talk for about a total of 5 minutes (and that's being generous) and then one of them just takes off. It's weird.

I am excited to be rereading these books though as it is a trip down memory lane. After this one, I think the others will be more like reading them for the first time because I don't remember the stories as well. We will see.
