WHOA, Jeeves!!! It's practically half of the book series! LOL! That's OK! So, I believe your top 3 books are:
Tintin and The Picaros
Tintin in Tibet
and
The Castafiore Emerald
Right?

Can't agree more with you two. The detail of scottish countryside was so impeccably drawn, and IMO it's head to head with the sceneries of South American forest in the Prisoners of the Sun.

Hmm I haven't seen anybody pick the moon series...

I suppose that Bob de Moor was largely responsible for that great detail.

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


Mainly because of the constant tension that builds throughout the whole story. The setting's are just pretty, and it shows England and Scotland well.
And also because I'm British.
Plus Tintin dresses in a kilt, which I find very cute.
