Translated from the French. Partial contents: The real-life inspiration behind Tintin's adventures / Stuart Tett.

The world's most famous travelling reporter must call on a feathered friend to track down a famous artifact ... and solve a murder in the process. The Arumbaya fetish has been stolen! But with the help of a talking parrot, Tintin is soon on the hunt for the famous artefact, which can be distinguished by its broken ear.

He must solve a murder and discover the true value of the fetish, and quick - because he is not the only one on the trail! Join the most iconic character in comics as he embarks on an extraordinary adventure spanning historical and political events, and thrilling mysteries.

Still selling over 100,000 copies every year in the UK and having been adapted for the silver screen by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson in 2011. The Adventures of Tintin continue to charm more than 80 years after they first found their way into publication.

Since then an estimated 230 million copies have been sold, proving that comic books have the same power to entertain children and adults in the 21st century as they did in the early 20th.
