About the Author

Herge (Georges Remi) was born in Brussels in 1907. Over the course of 54 years he completed 23 albums of The Adventures of Tintin series, which is now considered to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, comics series of all time. With translations published in over 80 languages, more than 230 million copies sold worldwide and a Hollywood movie to its name, Tintin dominates the Comics and Graphic Novels chart even today. Sadly, Herge died in 1983, leaving his 24th album, Tintin and Alph-Art, unfinished, but his hero continues to be one of the most iconic characters in both adult and children's fiction.

More About the Author

Hergé, one of the most famous Belgians in the world, was a comics writer and artist. The internationally successful Adventures of Tintin are his most well-known and beloved works. They have been translated into 38 different languages and have inspired such legends as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. He wrote and illustrated for "The Adventures of Tintin" until his death in 1983.

Format: Paperback
These charming comic books are the adventures of Jo Legrand, an adventurous boy, Zette his little sister and their pet monkey Jocko.

In this volume Jo and Zette (accompanied by Jocko the monkey) set off in the aircraftdesigned by their engineer father, the Stratoship H.22 to save it from gangsters.

First they land on a tropical island and after that their aircraft crashes into the North Pole, where they are rescued by Eskimos.

They however lose Jocko, and from their the adventure takes them to various other places, to save the Stratoship, beat the evil gangsters whoi are after them, reunite with Jocko, and win the challenge to cross the Atlantic.

Beautiful illustrations with lots of detials and movement.

Get it for your little daughter or son, niece or nephew, for an illustrated adventure series they will treasure for life.

This is another great book from Herge. We love all Tintin books, but Herge's early books are also very enjoyable.

Cute how the characters and stories seem like copies of Tin Tin.
We have all the Tin Tin books, so this was a nice addition. Make sure you get Mr. Pumps Legacy first

Although this is not nearly as good as the Tintin books, it is very good for younger readers (6-10). The artwork is just as good, but it is a very simple plot, and a lot of difficult problems they get into get solved because they happen to a rescuer that happens to be there, not necessarily though any ingenuity on their part.

I really didn't like this series to much, Tintin was my true favorite. But I bought this for my dad, who used to live in Germany and had the first part of this two book adventure, but never part two. So one day when going through his old stuff, he decided to ask me to order it for him. He wasn't disappointed one bit with the product, and it was in English! We bought it used so the cover was a little bent, but overall the book was immaculate. The story. to me, was rather repetitive and bland. But the art was perfect, just like Herges style. Overall I give it four stars.
