Tintin: The Castafiore Emerald

by Hergé, trans. Leslie Lonsdale-Cooper & Michael Turner (Methuen, 1963)

Book cover: “Tintin: The Castafiore Emerald” by Hergé, trans. Leslie Lonsdale-Cooper & Michael Turner (Methuen, 1963)

A truly delightful instalment. Hergé casts aside Tintin’s usual action-adventuring in favour of a manor house mystery full of playful misdirection. Even while humour and slapstick abound, he gives his fans a knowing wink (note the front cover) and subverts their expectations.
