It's a really interesting story! It's really intense in some parts, but I still think lots of kids should read it. The first book I read in this series was The Secret of the Unicorn, and I carried on from that. I have really enjoyed this book series and want to completely finish the series. I highly recommend this book and series. That was my like almost my favorite book in the series. I think that book or a book in that series should make the top 5 books in the entire world!!! I loved that book and highly recommend it again. Thanks a lot! -Ella, age 9

My 9 year-old loves this series. "Tintin in Tibet" is a little scarier than some of the others, but that just made it more fun for him.

This is by far my favorite Tintin book (and I LOVE this series.) Tintin's superier brains and endless determination to save his friend Chang makes this book interesting and touching all in one. My favorite part is when the Captain is about to sacrifice himself to let Tintin continue climbing the mountain (he is connected to Tintin by a rope and is hanging off a cliff, leaving Tintin immobile), but Tintin refuses to let him cut the rope, saying that they both survive, or they "die together." That really tugged at my heartstrings and reminded me just how righteous and devoted to his friends Tintin is! Best Tintin ever!!!

'Tintin in Tibet' is a little different from the normal routine of the Tintin stories. Tintin goes abroad, yes, but there is no particular mystery to solve, no sub-plots, no enemies to fight except the elements, and the fact that the Yeti is supposedly around. Tintin goes to Tibet to search for his friend Chang Chong-Chen, whom he met in 'The Blue Lotus'. Chang has been lost since an aeroplane taking him to Katmandu crashed against a mountain, and although the sherpas and moutaineers comprising the search party are confident that Chang is dead like all the other passengers, Tintin is sure he still lives. Spurred on by a dream, he hunts tirelessly despite the desertion of the porters and even the sherpa guiding them. The Captain follows reluctantly through every danger, and even Tintin is beginning to think that perhaps Chang is dead after all when they meet a monk called Blessed Lightning, who just may prove Tintin's expedition was not in vain. The Yeti is a vital but not always visible part of this story - in appearance a villian and a threat, but turning out to be a hero.

This is often hailed as a classic, but I can't say it's my favourite Tintin. I think it's spoilt by sentimentality-not too much, but enough to grate on your nerves after a while. While the Captain (as always) is terrific, I miss the cast of eccentrics that usually mill around him and Tintin-since the boy-reporter is a somewhat wooden character, he needs lively, colourful people to interact with. And I was never very keen on Chang, so risking your life to save him seems something of a waste.
