    TINTIN - RED RACKHAM'S TREASURE
    By Herge. Paperback, 0.28kg, 220mm x 294mm, 62 pages, Published 2012.

    The Tintin series first appeared in French on 10 January 1929, in Le Petit Vingtième (The Little Twentieth), a youth supplement to the Belgian newspaper Le Vingtième Siècle (The Twentieth Century). Translated into Eglish they have become classics.

    For people who do not know about Tintin, he is a young Belgian reporter and adventurer who becomes involved in dangerous cases in which he takes heroic action to save the day. The Adventures may feature Tintin hard at work in his investigative journalism, but seldom is he seen actually turning in a story.

    Not just for the young but also for the young at heart!
