THIS VOLUME -
Volume 4 - The Crab with the Golden Claws; The Shooting Star; The Secret of the Unicorn
Tintin, the most celebrated boy-detective, has been given a highly attractive and distinctive new look in handsome, small scale editions which read more like books. Each volume contains two or three of the original Tintin titles which, though reduced in size, reproduce the illustrations and the text as boldly and brightly as the originals. For collectors, existing fans of Tintin and for the ever-growing number of new recruits, these 8 volumes include every Tintin title including Tintin in the Land of the Soviets, Tintin in the Congo and one unfinished title that was published after the author’s death. They really are an essential purchase for young and old alike.

The Adventures of Tintin: Vol 4 by Herge
The Crab with the Golden Claws - A series of mysterious clues put Tintin and Snowy on the trail of a dangerous gang of opium-smugglers. Tintin's daring and cunning sees the adventure take them from the scorching Sahara Desert to the alleys of a Moroccan port.
The Shooting Star - "It's the END of the WORLD!" declares Professor Phostle, as an enormous star hurtles towards the earth. But he is disappointed - the star brushes past, leaving only a vast meteorite which falls in the Arctic waters. However, there is no mistake about the Professor's discovery of a valuable new metal in the meteorite; it is worth a colossal fortune, and in a hazardous search in polar regions Tintin, Snowy and Captain Haddock encounter some of their strangest adventures.
The Secret of the Unicorn - When Tintin finds an old model sailing ship and gives it as a present to Captain Haddock, an exciting adventure quickly develops. From an ancient diary they learn the story of the of the ship, the Unicorn—a story of cut-throat pirates and lost treasure. Helped by their detective friends Thomson and Thompson, Tintin, Snowy, and the Captain set out to uncover the secret of the Unicorn.
