Adventures of Tintin by Herge

Book Description

Join the world's most famous travelling reporter in three exciting adventures as he heads for the Sahara, investigates a meteorite and discovers the secret of The Unicorn. The Crab with the Golden Claws Faced with a drowned sailor, counterfeit coins and a ship full of opium, Tintin sets out on another adventure. Aboard the Karaboudjan Tintin is introduced to Captain Haddock for the first time, and they are soon both facing a deathly thirst in the Sahara desert. The Shooting Star Things are hotting up for Tintin as a huge fireball comes hurtling towards earth! Soon he is setting sail with Captain Haddock to find the meteorite in the stormy Arctic Ocean, but a valuable metal is contained in the meteorite and Tintin's attempts to reach it are met with relentless sabotage! The Secret of the Unicorn When Tintin stumbles across a model ship at the Old Street Market, he buys it as a gift for his friend Captain Haddock. But this isn't just any old model ship ...it's the Unicorn. Built by one of Haddock's ancestors it holds a clue to finding the treasure of a notorious pirate. Join the most iconic character in comics as he embarks on an extraordinary adventure spanning historical and political events, and thrilling mysteries. Still selling over 100,000 copies every year in the UK and having been adapted for the silver screen by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson in 2011, The Adventures of Tintin continue to charm more than 80 years after they first found their way into publication. Since then an estimated 230 million copies have been sold, proving that comic books have the same power to entertain children and adults in the 21st century as they did in the early 20th.
