The print and pictures are TINY in this edition. Definitely get the bigger books. But my 3 kids LOVE all these stories -- they're 8, 6, and 5.

A random search on 'Tintin' on Amazon.com brought back powerful memories of my happy youth, when my brother and I would save up our pocket money every month to buy used copies from local booksellers in the musty streets of Delhi. The books would be marked with pen and sundry stains, but, to us, they were a reminder of what lay just beyond our reach.
We would be fascinated by Tintin's travels through the most exotic places in the world (and beyond!). What colorful characters Haddock and Calculus are! For some reason, King Ottokar's Sceptre was always my favorite one, but almost all comics in this series are classics.
I would especially urge any one with young children to buy every Tintin comic book in existence, but, really, these comics will please all age groups.

This standard hardback sized 3 in 1 is just the thing. Most adults find Tintin an excellent toilet book and the single adventure large versions just aren't right. This neat set of three: The Broken Ear, The Black Island and King Ottokar's Sceptre (the best 'early' Tintin, by the way - i.e. no Captain Haddock or Calculus ; though the Thompson twins are not in their first adventure) fits nicely into the bathroom alongside the other volumes. I'm not sure why they stopped at three - or, at least, I can't find volume 4, but it was high time a decent-sized version of Tintin appeared and this does the trick nicely.

I read my first Titin when I was 11 and read every single Tintin adventure since then. While I have my reservations about certain Tintin adventures I think they are excellent entertainment for everybody. Unlike many other popular comics, Tintin is packed with good clean humor and plenty of action without being horrific.
