Tintin in Tibet (1959) by Herge
Herge’s Tintin books are classic graphic novels, all of them excellent to read as a child or adult. Tintin in Tibet is perhaps the best-known of the Tintin comics and was made into a cartoon in 1992. It is the story of Tintin, his friend Captain Haddock and his dog Snowy, travelling to the Himalayas to rescue a friend who may or may not have survived a plane crash. And, of course, they encounter the Yeti. The story is thrilling and the ending is satisfying. There is also a dash of slapstick humour, which Herge often includes in his works.
