I'd forgotten about Tintin!

I used to be a big fan in my travelling days, but only have the books in French. I 'need' to buy some English versions.

I am worried about the current length of my wishlist!



I'm just about to get the boys started on Tintin and looking forward to it. About the only thing I enjoyed in the 7 years I studied French at school was reading Tintin in the original. I'd also recommend Asterix translated into Latin. It's a hoot.
