Read full description of the books Asterix and the Normans:This, or Asterix and the Cauldron, is the very first Asterix book I read: and I immediately became a fan. This is one of the books where one of my favourite characters, Cacofonix the village bard, plays a central role. As all Asterix aficionados know, opinion is divided as to his talents - Cacofonix thinks he is a genius, everyone else thinks he is unspeakable.
The fearsome Normans, who "don't know the meaning of fear", come to the Gaulish coast to learn it - to their chagrin they meet with Asterix's village of indomitable Gauls, who also don't know it! Well, not everyone;because Justforkix, the Chief's visiting nephew from Lutetia, is very much an expert in fear as far as the Normans are concerned. So they kidnap him. The only way to get the boy back alive is to teach the Normans the meaning of fear.
The situation seems hopeless until Cacofonix steps in and gives them a concert. Within hours, the Normans don't learn only fear - they graduate to sheer nail-biting terror.
Well, here's another guy on whose musical talents opinion is divided.
(Well, they don't tie and gag me, but of late in our college alumni meetings I see that they never give me the microphone.)
