  About The Book

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

Someone is after Tintin! When he stumbles across a briefcase Tintin meets Professor Alembick, an expert with a very rare royal seal in his collection-the seal of King Ottokar the IV of Syldavia. Tintin joins the professor on his trip to this foreign land, but can the Professor be trusted? A clue in Syldavian history turns Tintin onto a conspiracy to take the current King's throne! But who is behind it? Will Tintin find out before he gets captured for good?

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.
