This is terrible. Far from being heroic adventure stories, or even narratives, this collection is merely a series of odd events that take place in various lands mainly occupied by morons. There are no motivations, just a cast of presented stereotypes ranging from the corniest of "heart of gold" natives to nasty caricatures. Tin Tin himself is presented as a reporter, but doesn't seen to have any kind of actual occupation other than getting tied up over and over again. This is the kind of book that a well meaning relative who has no idea what to buy a child would give as a present. Because it's pretty. And the masses like it. ( )

In this book there are 3 stories about the adventures of Tintin. But there is a fun one about a singing lady and she gets robed by bad men. She is going to call Tintin to help her to find the robbers. But it is hard to get the robbers because they are really strong because each robber has 2 guns. But like always Tintin is better and he hides and then he sneaks in where he needs too. At the end Tintin finishes and he did it for free. ( )

This graphic novel is about a reporter who travels all over. People come after him to get rid of him but he always out smartes them and gets away. This would be a good book for a child who struggles to read because it is easy to read,. but looks growen up. It is also good because kids will be able to see what other cultures look like.
