This repackaged hardcover volume contains 3 classic Tintin stories: The Castafiore Emerald, Flight 714, and Tintin and the Picaros.

About the Tintin Series:
The most revered graphic novel series in the homeschool community is the venerated Tintin series. Countless mothers have told us that their son's pivotal point in reading came when he was introduced to Tintin.

One of the Most Popular Graphic Novel Series of All Time
Originally a series of comic strips created by Belgian artist Hergé, The Adventures of Tintin first appeared in a children's supplement to a Belgian newspaper in 1929. The success of the series saw the strips collected into a succession of books, which are still hugely popular eighty years later. In fact, Tintin is one of the most popular graphic novel series of all time, with translations published in over 50 languages and more than 200 million copies of the books sold to date.

Wide Variety of Genres
The hero of the series is Tintin, a young Belgian investigative reporter who travels the world in search of the next notable event. One of the most astonishing features of the Tintin series is how it so effortlessly includes a wide variety of genres: brash adventures along with mysteries, political thrillers, and science fiction. Some Tintin stories feature slapstick humor, while others are invested with political and cultural satire, but each will draw your child like a magnet.

Story is More Than the Pictures
Unlike some graphic novels, where the text and the pictures are redundant, Tintin's plots are so engagingly complex that the text both amplifies and explains the neat, lively drawings, a balance that remains a benchmark for graphic novelists even today. This means your child will quickly discover that the story is much more than the pictures; even the most reluctant of readers may for the first time be willing to exert effort to decipher the written word. As a teaching parent you will appreciate the author's painstaking research, which adds to the credibility of each adventure, and your children will gain a glimpse into a world of which they are just beginning to become aware.

Please Note:
Tintin is printed by a secular company and may contain occasional scenes depicting false cultural assumptions of the time and excessive use of alcohol. The author does use these scenes to depict the foolishness of drunkenness.
Homeschooling moms love Tintin! The colorful series is engaging for young readers, but especially shines as fun reading for the reluctant reader. We've been told over and over how Tintin has made all the difference for boys who initially disliked reading; but began to love it after reading Tintin.

Great Adventure Stories January 16, 2013
Reviewer: Timberdoodle fan in Washington  
Tintin is a classic. It has stood the test of time and outshines the other graphic novels. It draws kids irresitibly into its story line, and before you know it, they are hooked on reading. It worked better for my children than "Hooked on Phonics". Before you discount graphic novels as valuable, consider this. A study was done on people who held post graduate degrees. They could find absolutely no common denominator among them, not race, finances, gender, nothing; except this, they all read comics as children. You might say, but everyone read comics as a child. In my family however, of five of us, four hold post graduate degrees. One of us did not like comics; I'll give you one guess which one stopped at a bachelor's. Not that degrees are important, except on thermometers, but my point is, comics won't stunt your child's education.

It's a good thing these are Hardcover! June 1, 2011
Reviewer: Jennifer Schneider from Rhinelander, WI United States  
We finally purchased the 7th volume to add to our collection and it has been read several times this last year!  These graphic novels follow the adventures of our hero TinTin.  History and geography play important roles in the stories, but the kids don't even realize they're learning something because they just enjoy the different adventure storylines!  I hesitated buying these at first because of the price for "just another storybook", but they have been read and re-read several times over the past few years and I have no plans to re-sell them!  My kids have picked up all kinds of interesting tidbits and have learned to become a bit more thoughtful and observant (as Tintin is in the adventures).  A fun, quick-paced, and even educational graphic novel series!  Enjoy!
