Publisher Description

“Dear Professor Calculus! I never imagined how important he would become. He first appears with his little shark-shaped, pocket-size submarine.” –Hergé

Tintin travels to the Caribbean to find the treasure that was once amassed by pirate Red Rackham, the eternal enemy of Captain Haddock's ancestor. A newcomer character, Professor Calculus, may hold the key to this riddle.

Tintin, perhaps one of the most famous cartoon heroes of all time, is as much a child of the 20th century as his creator, Georges Remi—aka Hergé (1907-1983). Tintin's adventures, marked by his inquisitiveness, sense of mystery and witty humour, are deeply rooted in the events of that tumultuous era.

Featuring an official new English translation.

    Retranslated! Do not buy!

    These books have been retranslated! The iBooks description does not attest to that. I bought five albums, just to discover that they've all been redone... Just horrible. This isn't the Tintin I love and admire. Of course, I have asked for a refund. I am not a purist by any stretch of the imagination, but the translation is pedestrian at best, and robs the story of flavor and edginess that was the hallmark of some characters like Haddock. :/ Very disappointed indeed.
