I really liked this book because it was very good. It has some cartoon violence, but there is no gore or blood. I think kids 9 + will really enjoy this, but it depends what they like and what their limit of too much action is. It's got a good plot and I think Tintin is a really good role model. He's kind and smart and he always knows what to say. He doesn't ever intend to do harm to anyone and he is very loyal to all of his friends. I recommend this book for parents who want to introduce their kids to the Tintin series. It's a great starter.
PS: Captain Haddock DOES drink a lot, but by some coincidence, Tintin always manages to stop him. The characters are lovable and kind to each other, and once you read one book it'll probably be up their with your other faves.
Thanks for reading, parents and children!
