Tintin, The Black Island / Tintin in Tibet by

In The Black Island , Tintin rushes to Scotland where he will confront a gorilla haunting a manor on a rocky island. This is a mysterious airplane which sets Tintin, for the first time, on the trail of Doctor Muller. The latter runs a strange kind of mental asylum: he who enters is not necessarily deranged. As he pursues Muller, Tintin will end up on the Black Island where he will discover an even stranger activity...In Tintin in Tibet , the second story on this CD, a young Chinese boy called Chang is en route to Europe, when he is the victim of an airplane crash in the Himalayas. This story recounts Tintin's desperate search for his lost friend. This poignant adventure, contrasting with the extroverted tone of the two previous episodes, demonstrates that loyalty and hope can overcome all obstacles and that preconceived ideas - such as the fear for 'abominable snowman' - are often the result of sheer ignorance. Each story is approximately 30 minutes long.
