I read these books when I was a child, and loved them so much I cannot describe it here. They are not for everyone - some children find them confusing and don't get it completely, but the ones that do get it have tremendous affection for the books.

I still have a lot of love for the books as an adult, and now that my daughter is hooked on the adventures of Tintin and Milou (Tintin and Snowy), I often find myself engrossed in the copies we now have for her.

Also - The original French editions are great for teaching a child French, as long as you have the English version nearby to compare.

Excellent choice. . .

This 3-in-One volume is smaller size than the regular Tintin books, making it harder to read and lessens the enjoyment of the illustrations. I am not sure if a large-size 3-in-one series exists.

Be forewarned that the final adventure of Tintin collected in Volume 3 of Hergé is the first half of a two-part tale. However, this should not be a problem because by the time you get to Volume 3 of "The Adventures of Tintin" you should be committed to getting all seven books (and probably to tracking down the two earlier Hergé stories of the intrepid young reporter and his faithful canine companion Snowy):

"The Crab with the Golden Claws" has a simple beginning, when Snowy goes scavenging in the rubbish and gets his muzzle stuck in a can of crabmeat, which quickly leads our hero on a new adventure. Tintin is knocked unconscious aboard a mysterious ship and taken out to sea where the bad guys intend to send him to the bottom. Of course, but then he comes across the ship's drunken captain, who introduces himself as Captain Haddock. The rest, as they say is history, because this is the first of many adventures for Tintin and the person who, along with Snowy, becomes his almost constant companion in the years to come. Even though this is the good captain in his rawest form, Hergé knew he was onto something with the emotional, blustering, cursing (in his way) Haddock, while Snowy, he does manage to find some of the biggest bones in his long career. "The Crab with the Golden Claws" takes Tintin and his companions from the perils of the high sea to the burning sands of the desert. Of course, all those cans of crab are not actually filled with crab. This 1941 story is a traditional exotic adventure for the Tintin, filled with slapstick and narrow escapes in equal measure, which might indicate Hergé's desire to forget about what was happening in Europe at that point in history.

Tintin is wonderful, delightful, fun, and as a 26 year old I sitll enjoy it as much as when I was 5 years old. I think everybody should get to know these wonderful stories. You can read them over and over again and it feels like you are with the characters. The stories are funny, witty and truly adventerous. I RECOMMEND TINTIN (ANY OF HIS ADVENTURES) HIGHLY.....

I loved reading TinTin about 30 yrs ago, but the book was about 8.5"x11". This book is only 5"x7", and is hard to read. I was very excited about the books, but now I am very disappointed. Don't waste your time buying the small sized books. If I have a hard time reading, then my kids will too. I have good 20/20 eye site, but won't if I read these books. I am returning the TinTin books I bought, and looking for the larger ones even if it costs more. If I buy them, I want my kids to enjoy them as much as I did when I was young.

I bought this book to save a few bucks. I figured 3 books in one, why not? I was shocked to see the text as small as they could print to save money. Very disappointed.

We borrowed the Tintin trilogy books from our local library and loved the idea of the books coming in a hardcover as opposed to papercover form because they were supposed to be for our kids (age 4 and 6). However the books we ordered on Amazon, Vol 2 and 3 were, unfortunately, slightly smaller than the library version. This made a difference, as the font size in the Amazon copy is small and fine. My husband and I sometimes have a difficult time reading the text but our kids love the books and they are being read every day since we purchased them Feb 2011.

This book was recommended to me by a High School Literature teacher for my 11 year old son. I bought one, and he was hooked. These books are quirky, colorful and fun, and actually do have some literary value. It's hard to find books for comic book fans (who don't want to read anything else!), but my son loves these and always asks for the next one when he finishes one. I don't want them to end, but alas..
