Tintin & Maekitso – a series of favourites, reflections and responses to Tintin by guest bloggers

My Grandpa introduced me to Tintin and Snowy when I must have been 10 or 11. As I remember it, we were sharing our stamp collections after lunch and it was almost time for afternoon tea.

He gave me a stamp that had Tintin and Snowy on it. I asked him who Tintin and Snowy were. He went out to his shed for a couple of minutes and came back with a comic strip from a newspaper. I didn’t understand what they were saying.

I still can’t remember what stamp I swapped for the one with Tintin and Snowy, but I can remember that just after Grandpa put the newspaper strip back in his shed we shared an Iced VoVo and Grandma spun the teapot anticlockwise three times.
