This book was in a smaller format than the Tintin books I have had previously, so the print was quite small. However, it was otherwise fine, and a great way of getting teenagers to practice their French
It wasn't obvious to me when I ordered this, but it's the smaller, half-size edition, not the more or less A4 sized ones I remembered as a kid. Which in some ways is nicer, because it's cute, but it makes the text rather small since the whole page is photographically reduced. It's still a nice glossy-cover hardback. The rest is pure Tintin, so exactly what you would expect. This story is one I remember fondly and has the full cast of characters including Professeur Tournesol, Capitaine Haddock and Dupond et Dupont, the inept detectives. Great for improving your French!
