The Castafiore Emerald is a interesting book. Tintin is living with his friend Captain Haddock at Marlinspike Hall, when famous opera singer Bianca Castafiore, the Milanese Nightingale, Tintin's friend, invites herself to stay for a few weeks. Unfortunately, Captain Haddock can't stand her voice, runs upstairs to pack his suitcases to leave for Milan, slips on the broken step, sprains his ankle, and has to put up with the singing and a parrot named Iago that she gave him. Next Castafiore's emerald disappears and the culprit turns out to be.... I'm not going to tell you. You have to read the book to find out. One thing: Thomson and Thompson are wrong, as usual.
