  About The Book

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

Off to trace a mysterious plane crash, Tintin must be onto something big! Someone is trying to keep him away from the crash site-but Tintin manages to escape without harm, until clues start leading to a suspicious and dangerous Doctor. The case leads Tintin to Scotland, where he learns of a monster that stalks his destination, called Black Island. Will Tintin find out what these international crooks are up to or will he fall victim to the beast?

Get a behind the scenes look at Herge's creation of Tintin! The young readers editions come complete with an in depth readers guide to loads of fun and interesting Tintin facts.
