Synopsis

Tintin Au Congo by Herge

Read about the world's most famous travelling reporter in his native language, French, as Tintin's adventures take him to the Congo. The young reporter Tintin and his faithful dog Snowy set off on assignment to Africa. But a sinister stowaway follows their every move and seems set on ensuring they come to a sticky end. Tintin and Snowy encounter witch doctors, hostile tribesmen, crocodiles, boa constrictors and numerous other wild animals before solving the mystery and getting their story. Join the most iconic character in comics as he embark on an extraordinary adventure spanning historical and political events, and thrilling mysteries. Still selling over 100,000 copies every year in the UK and having been adapted for the silver screen by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson in 2011, The Adventures of Tintin continue to charm more than 80 years after they first found their way into publication. Since then an estimated 230 million copies of Herge's works have been sold, proving that comic books have the same power to entertain children and adults in the 21st century as they did in the early 20th.

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.
