Adventures with Tintin

The Young Lady has been doing a lot of reading, but (like me, when I was a kid) tends to fall into small interest groups: reading the same series several times, etc. So we went to the library this weekend and went through a couple of shelves worth of books, with me looking at stuff and saying things like "Hey, this is about kids who travel through time, like The Magic Treehouse, want to try that?", etc.

The one suggestion I thought she'd reject immediately has really hooked her. I spotted several Tintin omnibus collections, three adventures per book. I pulled them out, talked about them, and she took out three. And has been reading them end-to-end since. You never know what will hook her!
