Product description

Join the original cartoon hero on a crusade to find hidden pirate treasure! When tufty-haired Tintin buys an old model ship, the Unicorn, as a gift for his friend Captain Haddock, he has no idea that it holds the clue to a long-lost treasure hoard. But as the friends begin to solve the riddle of the ship, ruthless enemies are hot on their trail… Comic strip pioneer Hergé’s dazzling illustrations bring this Tintin adventure to gripping and comical life. Expect piratical derring-do at its very finest!
