The Lovereading4Kids comment
A favourite of Philip Pullman: "Three generations of this family have loved Tintin. Perfect timing, perfect narrative tact and command, blissfully funny."
THIS VOLUME -
Volume 8 - Flight 714 to Sydney; Tintin and the Picaros; Tintin and Alph Art
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 plane is hi-jacked, and the millionaire and his guests are landed on a Pacific island, where their old enemy Rastapopoulos awaits them. Using a truth drug on Carreidas, he intends to extract the number of the millionaire's secret Swiss bank account, unless, of course, Tintin can save the day.
