Artemis Fowl – Eoin Colfer

artemis-fowl11

Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is the most ingenious criminal mastermind in history. With two trusty sidekicks in tow, he hatches a cunning plot to divest the fairyfolk of their pot of gold. Of course, he isn’t foolish enough to believe in all that “gold at the end of the rainbow” nonsense. Rather, he knows that the only way to separate the little people from their stash is to kidnap one of them and wait for the ransom to arrive. But when the time comes to put his plan into action, he doesn’t count on the appearance of the extrasmall, pointy-eared Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon (Lower Elements Police Reconnaisance) Unit–and her senior officer, Commander Root, a man (sorry, elf) who will stop at nothing to get her back.


This is a cool book! Artemis is able to accomplish more at 12 than most adults can in their lifetimes. He rocks. I really like the way the author runs the fairy glyphs (letters) along the edges of the pages too so that you can decode the messages. A great start to a new and adventurous series. Recommended. – Jessica, Teen Librarian
