Explorers on the Moon: 07/22/09
Explorers on the Moon continues with Tintin, the Captain, Dr. Calculus and the other guy in the rocket. They've passed out from the severe Gs of lift off and the folks back on Earth fear the worst.
Of course they are fine and manage to wake up and get to the moon. They have a few adventures on the way and discover a pair of stowaways on board (can you guess who). With being in a rocket with limited resources, one stowaway would be a problem, but more than one? Things are getting dicey.
The moon landing itself begins as hard science fiction but it quickly devolves into typical Tintin. There is an unexpected threat, a trip into in some caves, ice on the moon and other stuff that just doesn't make sense.
All that being said, it was the most fun of three Tintins I read this month.

Sometimes, reading a non-sense book has sense in it. The book looks interesting, though.

The Tintin books are quick reads. They'd be great for your waiting room for your younger clientele.
