The Adventures of Tintin Series

by
(111 reviews)

This much-loved classic NEVER gets old. If you love graphic novels and comic books, don't miss out on one of the most iconic characters in children's books!

Hergé's classic comic book creation Tintin is one of the most loved series in children's publishing. Sold in over 70 languages, millions and millions copies sold and over 90 years later, we couldn't love Tintin and his trusty pet Snowy more!

Tintin is a talented and clever reporter always on the hunt for new stories. By his side we have:

1. Snowy, his trusty furry friend
2. Captain Haddock, always ready with a cynical comment
3. Professor Calculus, distracted professor always dressed in green
4. Thomson and Thompson, two absolutely hilarious detectives that are not great at their jobs
5. Bianca Castafiore, world-famous opera singer (whose voice most characters can't stand)

Join these brilliantly fun characters on each of their many adventures around the globe. Search for undiscovered pharaoh tombs, unravel evil plots to steal medieval king sceptres, join scientific expeditions to the Arctic on an international race to find fallen meteorites, find hidden pirate treasures and even land on the moon! Every Tintin volume will blow your mind with adventure, heart and humour. 

These books are also perfect read for visual readers! If you enjoy graphic novels or would like to read more, why not check out our graphic novels for kids post, too! It's a treasure trove of book recommendations
