The Shooting Star
'"It's the END of the WORLD!" declares Professor Phostle, as an enormous star hurtles towards the earth. But he is disappointed - the star brushes past, leaving only a vast meteorite which falls in the Arctic waters." - Tintinologist
My sister Hester brought this stunning piece back from a trip to Malaysia for me about four years ago. I've read all of the Tintin books over and over again, and I've always found this one by far the strangest. The title was translated to English as "The Shooting Star."
