This audiobook is based on the 2011 movie.

Tintin and his trusty dog, Snowy, are always on the lookout for adventure. When Tintin buys a model ship called the Unicorn, he doesn’t realize he is 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.

This chapter book is adapted by Stephanie Peters, based on the screenplay by Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright, and Joe Cornish, based on the comic-book series The Adventures of Tintin by Hergé.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Nick Sullivan’s narration begins with a neutral-voiced, straightforward description of Tintin, ‘a young reporter with a nose for news.’ Soon Sullivan launches into dramatic characterizations, beginning with Tintin’s light British accent and his deep enthusiasm for the Unicorn, a three-masted model ship he buys. Almost immediately villain Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine enters, his evil tones affecting just the right sinister sound as he tries to bully Tintin into selling the Unicorn without success. This speedy entry sets the quick pace of nonstop adventures—a mysterious scroll slips from the ship’s mast; Tintin is kidnapped and finds himself traveling aboard a sailing ship. Sullivan’s portrayals of the story’s larger-than-life characters take listeners to exotic lands, where treasure and surprises await around every corner.”

    " Used movie art..story is all plot. Not sure I would recommend to kid readers, but not sure that matters...if they have seen the movie, it will be of interest. "

    " A decent enough adaptation, but one I would only recommend for kids who really enjoyed the movie. The book follows the movie so closely that it skips along at a rapid pace and many things are glossed over. Good, but probably confusing without having seen the film. "
