Brilliant illustrations. Brilliant adventures—including my fave, Tintin in Tibet—with Tintin always convincingly winning the day through his good morals and upstanding manners—he taught me what little I know about being a gentleman. Nothing better to curl up in a couch and read through a tall thing color-brite volume in one sitting—whether child or adult.

    Tintin is a classic. I used to read them in Farsi in Iran, my mom used to read them in French in her childhood, partly in France, and now I have just about every single one in French from Paris and Belgium and going through them slowly. A classic. A brilliant script, with humour, and many lessons in between those funny lines!!!
