Best present for a child? Get ’em a (Tintin) book.


My hero—the gentlemanly, boyish adventurer who taught me how to be a winner without being a jerk.

    I love Tintin! My dad has some of the original editions from when he was a kid!

    I grew up reading the Tintin books, and they helped me form that part of myself that is nostalgic, world-aware, and adventurous. Thanks for reminding me. I left all of my original prints with my family in Ohio, but I might order some reprints to have here in Colorado 🙂
