This audiobook is based on the new movie!
When Tintin buys a model ship called the Unicorn, he doesn't realize he's about to become the center of a centuries-old family feud involving nefarious pirates and treasure! Following clues from the high seas to the blazing-hot desert, Tintin makes new friends and outwits new enemies as he uncovers the secret of the Unicorn.

I'm a voracious audiobibliophile, mainly interested in speculative fiction, with the occasional mimetic fiction or non-fiction title sneaking in.
While there are a few low points in the writing ("the bad guys"...) it's a fun little story that my kids enjoyed well enough, with an entertaining enough production to keep their interest. As far 1-star reviews complaining that this isn't the full novelization of the movie: it's in the title. "The Chapter Book." There are two primary print products, one being the full novelization, the other being a short chapter book meant for even younger readers. This is the latter.
Sure. Got this one because I wanted to know what my son was reading.
He was fine.
Sorry but no.
Good children's book and was glad it was in this format so I could listen to it and now what my child was reading and be able to assist in his report.
This audio book is not the book you buy in the store. My 8 year old daughter is reading Tin Tin and I thought that I would get the audio as well. The audio is less than an hour. The book has 150 pages. Clearly they are only reading the highlights of the chapter. Huge disappointment. The kids love the book and movie. Save your money and don't get it.
