Created by Georges Remi (1907 – 1986), better known as Herge, the Tintin books tell the story of a young reporter and his worldwide adventures. Stories in these books range from science fiction fantasies to plots based on real historical events of the time. When I was younger these books really sparked by interest in other cultures and histories. The pictures below are the covers of these books. Clicking on them will take you to an ordering page.
Along with individual books you can also order volumes containing 3 to 4 books together to save money.
