When a snowball goes astray - and hits a Maharajah - Jo, Zette and their pet monkey Jocko begin an adventure that takes them from Alpine ski-slopes to a snake-infested gorge in the Himalayas. Herge's story is as full of excitement and laughter as one of his Tintin books, with unforgettable characters like the hot-tempered Maharajah of Gopal, his long-suffering secretary Badalah and the evil but accident-prone fakir of the Valley of Cobras. The Adventures of Tintin are world famous, but Herge also created other stories and characters that continue to delight. Here is one of the best, begun orginally in 1939, but only achieved in its final form nearly twenty years later.
