The Lovereading4Kids comment

The Red Sea Sharks was chosen by April 2012 Guest Editor, Charlie Higson: "I’ve always loved comics, and as a kid I devoured Asterix and Tintin. I love the strong, clear and precise artwork in these books. Tintin become the model for my own children’s fiction. He is a child having adventures in the adult world, taking on and besting the grown-ups, and we never question that he is just a boy. I find the old ships and planes and vehicles terribly romantic and the look and feel of Tintin was a huge influence on my Young Bond books."

THIS VOLUME -

Volume 7 - The Calculus Affair; The Red Sea Sharks; Tintin in Tibet

Julia Eccleshare's Comment:

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.

Synopsis

The Adventures of Tintin: Vol 7 by Herge

The Calculus Affair - "No more travels or adventures; no more careering all round the world. I've had enough of it!" says Captain Haddock. But danger threatens - Unscrupulous Bordurians kidnap Professor Calculus, and Tintin, Snowy and the Captain are soon on the trail again. It is no easy task to rescue the Professor and save his fantastic invention. Spies are everywhere, and Calculus lies deep in the fortress of Bakhine. But the Bordurians have Tintin to deal with.

The Red Sea Sharks - When he hears that the Emir Ben Kalish has been deposed by rebels, Tintin is quickly on his way to Khemed to help his old friend. But behind the scenes is that ruthless international gangster and slave trader, the so-called Marquis di Gorgonzola. The Marquis will stop at nothing to protect his sinister interests. Tintin, Snowy and Captain Haddock may escape from the danger of the desert, but far deadlier perils await them in the Red Sea.

Tintin in Tibet - The young Belgian reporter once again sets off around the world, travelling to Tibet in search of his friend, Chang, who has been involved in a plane crash high in the Tibetan mountains. Will he find Chang? And how will he survive the perilous snow-capped mountains and the dangers faced with every step?

About the Author

Herge

Tintin was created in 1929 by the Belgian cartoonist Hergé, then aged just 21, for a weekly children's newspaper supplement. Tintin is a young reporter, aided in his adventures by his faithful fox terrier dog Snowy (Milou in French). In Tintin, Hergé created a hero who embodied human qualities and virtues, without any faults.

The Adventures of Tintin is one of the most popular comics series of the twentieth century, with translations published in over 80 languages, and more than 230 million copies of the books sold worldwide.
