Good adventure book for children

Would you try another book from Stephanie Peters and/or Nick Sullivan?

Sure

Would you be willing to try another book from Stephanie Peters? Why or why not?

Sure. Got this one because I wanted to know what my son was reading.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

He was fine.

Did The Adventures of Tintin: The Chapter Book inspire you to do anything?

Sorry but no.

Any additional comments?

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.

It is what it is: a simplified story for the film.

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.

Don't buy it

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

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.
