Prisoners of the Sun
Tintin and his trusty companions Captain Haddock and Snowy, travel to Peru to rescue Professor Calculus. With the help of a young local named Zorrino, the team follow Calculus's trail over snow-capped mountains, dodging the dangers of the Amazon rainforest before managing to find the Temple of the Sun.
The Calculus Affair
Professor Calculus has invented a machine that can destroy objects with soundwaves - and it has caught the eye of the Bordurian secret services. Determined to steal the machine, they decide to kidnap Calculus and take him to Borduria when their plans are foiled.
Explorers on the Moon
Following on from Destination Moon, it finds Professor Calculus taking Tintin, Snowy, Captain Haddock and Frank Wolff to the moon in his rocket. But things are not as they seem. Written over a decade before the Apollo 11 moon landing, Herge was very much of his time but was keen to ensure the book was as scientifically accurate as could possibly be.
Land of Black Gold
Land of Black Gold finds the world embroiled in political tensions and on the edge of warfare, while car engines are spontaneously exploding throughout the country.
Red Rackham's Treasure
Tintin, Snowy and Captain Haddock rent a boat -the Sirius-and set sail on a treasure hunt. But try as they might, and despite searching the bottom of the ocean and a hidden island they discover, the intrepid explorers cannot find the treasure. And yet what if it has been right under their noses for the whole time?
Professor Calculus is working on a top-secret project in a state-of-the-art secure government facility. He is working to build a rocket that will transport human beings to the Moon. But who will he take with him on this historic journey? Tintin, Captain Haddock and Snowy of course!0
