Chang, a young Chinese boy en route to Europe, is the victim of an airplane crash in the Himalayas. Tintin in Tibet (1960) is a pure story of friendship, devoid of all villains, and which recounts Tintin's desperate search for his lost friend. This poignant adventure, contrasting with the extroverted tone of the two previous adventures, demonstrates that loyalty and hope can overcome all obstacles and that preconceived ideas, such as the fear of the "abominable snowman", are often the result of sheer ignorance.

About the Author

Herge (Georges Remi) was born in Brussels in 1907. Over the course of 54 years he completed 23 albums of The Adventures of Tintin series, which is now considered to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, comics series of all time. With translations published in over 80 languages, more than 230 million copies sold worldwide and a Hollywood movie to its name, Tintin dominates the Comics and Graphic Novels chart even today. Sadly, Herge died in 1983, leaving his 24th album, Tintin and Alph-Art, unfinished, but his hero continues to be one of the most iconic characters in both adult and children's fiction.

Alex Browning on
You have to love tintin. its a classic. Even though it says for young children everyone enjoys it. If you dont already know tintin is the story of a oung reporter named tintin who breaks cases and brings criminals to justice with teh help of his dog, snowy. An all time favorite, tintin is a must for everyone.
Simon Moetara on
"Tintin in Tibet" is the 20th adventure written and illustrated by Herge, with the investigative journalist tintin as our hero.

This story lacks the international intrigue of past volumes - no opium smuggling, no gun running or slave trading - Tintin hears about a plane crashing in the Himalayas. His friend Chang is on the plane. Tintin dreams that Chang is OK, and so, with his friend Captain Haddock, he sets out to rescue him.

They also encounter the Yeti... arguably the best in the series.
