    Long Live Tintin

    I love Tintin. I read the comic books when I was young and still reread them. Now my 4 boys read them and love them. This adventure is before he joins Captain Haddock. It is one of the best ones. Highly recommended just like all the other 20-plus adventures available.

    Och Aye the Noo!

    As the only Brit-based Tintin story, I have to admit to having a special affection for it. There are even more high jinks and japes than usual, and the Thompsons mug along with typical inept elegance. I have to say that Scotland isn't much like Herge's romanticised picture of it, but the detail is so delightful it doesn't matter. -And isn't the fight scene, where Dr Muller and Tintin spin round double fast, so they look like they're caught in a tumble drier, terrific?

    Subject: Forgery

    This amazing saga leads Tintin on a merry chase after forgers and Snowy after bones and whisky. This is the only book I know of in which Tintin actually gives Snowy a mild spanking about his weakness for the Loch Lomond. This book is fabulous all around: with the certified detectives Thomson (without a p) and Thompson (with a p, as in psychology), there are plenty of laughs in store. Also it is the first appearance of Doctor Muller (known as Professor Smith in 'The Land of Black Gold'). Tintin looks incredibly cute in the kilt. Tintin lands in a hospital bed twice in this episode, first after being shot and the next time after being rescued from a burning house. Both times he jumps out of bed practically right away, as energetic and chipper as ever. Wonderful story and definitely my third favourite.
