Red Rackham's Treasure is my favourite. It's hard to choose though, as most of them are excellent. Blue Lotus, Shooting Star and Destination Moon come close.

Thanks guys that's lovely and really helpful!
But I think it's funny someones telling me how to say Tintin properly when they get a book title totally wrong: it's Cigars of the Pharaoh... not Beeper!

So, Grey, The Black Island is the top book for you! For me it is as well! Can you tell your reasons why?

To me (personal opinion), I believe, The Black Island is the most serious adventure of the early books. It always keeps me on edge when I read it. Especially, the part of the fire at Muller's. The firefighters don't get the darn key to the vehicle and Tintin is about to be roasted alive!!!!
