Tintin has certainly been a part of the zeitgeist for anyone over 30, and it's so lovely to see a new generation of readers become entranced (especially since the movie version) with these timeless, classic adventure comics.
In this new series by Hardie Grant Egmont, younger readers can enjoy a comic romp with Tintin and snowy in abridged versions of larger books.
Each book also includes wonderful addendum pages featuring the real-life inspiration for Tintin's adventures, including photos and fun facts. Wonderful stuff.
So far, the series includes:
