  About The Book

Join Tintin and Snowy--the world's greatest adventurers--as they solve thrilling mysteries around the world!

Tintin tries to take a vacation, but while on his cruise ship a mystery unfolds! He meets Dr. Sarcophagus who leads him to the undiscovered tomb of the Pharaoh Kih-Oskh. In the tomb he finds strange cigars bearing the pharaoh's symbol and then... the professor disappears! Tintin is on the hunt for his friend and the meaning of the cigars, but someone is out to stop him! Tintin escapes villainous traps, prison, and an asylum, until the adventure takes him all the way to India where he learns a band of smugglers is behind the kidnappings. Can he put a stop to their crimes and save the professor?
