TinTin in the Congo review

Recently I just got the last 10 TinTin books I needed to get all 24 TinTin books. If anyone is planning to buy TinTin books I recommened that you get full size books instead of the small 3 set book’s which are smaller. My reason for you to buy the big book is because the picture is less blurry and the words are easier to read than the smaller ones order them from http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tintin-Congo-Adventures-Herge/dp/1405220988/ref=sr_1_7?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1330251712&sr=1-7 since they are cheaper than in stores. TinTin in the congo is a book about a young boy who is adventurous. He is a reporter who solves mysteries and arrests criminals. He also has a dog called Snowy who helps him in his adventures and loves to drink alchahol making him drunk and nearly get killed. Snowy also finds out where people are with there scent. TinTin in congo is about TinTin going to Africa and fighting against Al Capones gang and arresting them but not Al Capone.

去看牙医 (To The Dentist)

今天我不去牙医。

牙医会检查。他可以使我的牙齿干静。他不要肮脏的牙齿。如果牙齿肮脏,我就会痛。我天天刷牙。我也不可以天天吃糖。不然我的牙齿就会坏。

Translation:Today I am not going to the dentist. The dentist will have a look to check my teeth. He can make my teeth clean and shiny. Because he doesn’t want dirty teeth for anybody. If my teeth are dirty I will feel pain. I will brush my teeth everyday. I can not eat sweets everyday. If not my teeth will be spoiled.
