I bought this for my 8 yo son who HATES to read but has wanted to see the movie. So I made a deal- if he reads the book- he sees the movie at the theater. Not only has he read this book with little arguement, he read it in record time.For him- that's a big deal. Usually he fakes reading what he is assigned to read but this time he would stop reading to tell me what has happened and is genuinely excited by the series. In fact, he now wants to buy the entire Tin Tin series to read (since we haven't been able to locate them in the library) and do his upcoming 3rd grade Author assignment on the life of Herge. I would say it is a huge success!

Reviewed by Janet J for Readers Favorite Great blistering barnacles! Our hero, young reporter Tintin (with a nose for news) stumbles across a find among the odds and ends at the Old Street Market: a model of The Unicorn, a ship which belonged to Sir Francis Hannock, who lost his fortune when it went down. When the model is accidentally knocked to the floor, the broken mast reveals a piece of rolled parchment; on the parchment, written in a spidery hand, is a riddle. Whoever solves the riddle holds a crucial piece of information pointing to the location of pirate Red Rackman's treasure! Tintin isn't the only one pursuing the treasure of the notorious pirate; as soon as he owns the model ship he finds himself in frequent danger, but with his white terrier Snowy at his side, he always manages to find a creative way to escape his pursuers (“Great snakes! Look out!”). Snowy is also an excellent judge of character; together they are a formidable team. This story takes Tintin and Snowy from land to sea, as well as from the extremes of the bottom of the ocean to the limitless sky. A few of the unusual characters Tintin encounters include a sinister descendant of pirate Red Rackman himself, camels, and an opera singer. This audiobook version of the movie tie-in novelization is delightful and engaging, and truly great to listen to. Nick Sullivan’s narration gives each character a distinctive voice, accent, or dialect, while establishing a lively tone and pace that keep the listener actively involved. The book is recommended for readers aged 8 and up, and this audio version should be very appealing to all ages.

Avertised as an "expanded novelization"it turns out to be only 20 short pages with about 2sentinces per page.Definetly not worth 3.99.

I read this book and then saw the new movie in 3D. Since I read the book first, I really enjoyed seeing all the details in the movie interpretation even more. The book is an enjoyable read. You really feel like you are on the adventure with the characters. However, I wish I had selected an illustrated movie edition. I think the cover of thie book is very beautiful. I also bought the new Tintin tea from the Republic of Tea, which is very good. You might want to check it out.
