Mr Pump's legacy is ten million dollars. It will go to the builders of the first aeroplane to fly from Paris to New York at 1000 kilometres per hour. To save the Stratoship H.22, designed by their father and now threatened by gangsters, Jo and Zette have taken off in the aircraft. Their pet monkey Jocko has gone too. Short of fuel, they land on a desert island... The Adventures of Tintin are world famous, but Herge also created other stories and characters that continue to delight. Here is Part One of a class two-part tale, to be continued in Part Two: Destination New York, originally created in the nineteen-thirties
