||Les Aventures Du Tintin
Read about the world's most famous travelling reporter in his native language, French, as Tintin follows the case of the Castafiore Emerald thief. When Captain Haddock meets a gipsy palm reader, he dismisses a forewarning about a beautiful lady's stolen jewels. But then the famous opera singer Bianca Castafiore suddenly descends on Marlinspike Hall, and the gipsy's predictions seem to become all too real. Can Tintin catch the emerald thief? Join the most iconic character in comics as he embarks on an extraordinary adventure spanning historical and political events, and thrilling mysteries. Still selling over 100,000 copies every year in the UK and having been adapted for the silver screen by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson in 2011, The Adventures of Tintin continue to charm more than 80 years after they first found their way into publication. Since then an estimated 230 million copies have been sold, proving that comic books have the same power to entertain children and adults in the 21st century as they did in the early 20th.
