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.
