Adventures of Tintin is completely absorbing to my 10 year old son. He loves the graphics, humor, and adventure. Parents like the fact that Tintin books are set around the world and bring the opportunity to learn about geography in a fun way. This is a book a 10 year old won't put down, and will read again and again. It would also be excellent for reluctant readers because of the comic stylel format. The vocabulary;however, is much more sophisticated than a typical comic book, and the books have a much broader range of themes than a typical superhero comic book.

I grew up with Tintin. So I was really excited to get this for my daughter, especially after i saw the 5-star reviews by others. But this book is IMPOSSIBLE to read! My 7-year old (who has perfect vision BTW) had to use a magnifying glass! It appears as though they have scanned the original books, decreased the font size like 5 times to squeeze the original version into a a little book. I'm afraid we are returning it! I'm very disappointed.

While The Black Island has to be one of the silliest Tintin stories, this volume is redeemed by the inclusion of King Ottokar's Sceptre, which is one of the best of the Tintin adventures. That said, the art in The Black Island is wonderful in parts, especially the depictions of a lonely, abandoned castle on the Black Island itself. And then the gorilla enters the story and the whole thing goes downhill rapidly, but the story as a whole is not without it's merits.The Broken Ear is mediocre at best, despite the charming and antiquated views of early twentieth-century revolutionaries in South America. A frothier brew of sombreros and ethnic stereotypes has rarely been seen outside of these pages.But then we have King Ottokar's Sceptre, one of the best of the bunch. What I like about this sotry is both it's lovely (yet respectful) evocation of an Eastern European monarchy (remember those?) paired with a storyline that actually grants the Thompson twins a moment of dignity (among many other moments of slapstick tomfoolery) and even gives Bianca Castafiore a brief chance to shine. The central mystery of "how was the sceptre stolen?" provides an intriguing puzzle for Tintin to solve, and even Snowy gets a little extra time in the spotlight in this adventure. Overall, a true Tintin classic, and well worth the price of admission.

I absolutely enjoyed this book. I always ask my dad what books he used to read as a child, and he told me the Tintin series. Since he used to live in England, he was also able to watch the cartoon. I have helped many people discover this fascinating book and enjoy it. A must read for all ages.

Perfect for all ages!! I have been reading TINTIN for over 27 years! I have ordered all the 7 volumes but I wish the print and size were similar to the original comic books. Nevertheless, TINTIN remains to be the 8th wonder for me!
