The Lovereading4Kids comment

Not to be missed! This book is slick, stylish; action packed and is an exhilarating read from start to finish. The criminal genius and mastermind is available for the first time in graphic novel form. Giovanni Rigano, who worked on The Incredibles Graphic Novels, does the animation and artwork in a realistic, tasteful style. Cunning, witty and armed to the teeth Artemis Fowl makes James Bond look like he’s fresh out of nappies.

Artemis Fowl - Graphic Novel by Eoin Colfer

In this graphic version of the classic novel, Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is a brilliant criminal mastermind. But even Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. These fairies are armed and they're dangerous. Artemis thinks he's got them just where he wants them, but then they stop playing by the rules.


'Reads like the fastest, punchiest comic strip you've ever come across' - Daily Telegraph

'Fast-paced, tongue-in-cheek, with some laugh-out-loud jokes. Smart and page-turning' - Sunday Times

About the Author

Eoin Colfer

Both Eoin Colfer’s parents were teachers and young Eoin was taught by his dad Billy at Wexford’s Christian Brothers primary. Eoin remembers his dad’s presence in school as “witty…[he] made school fun.” Colfer junior’s first attempt at serious writing came in the sixth grade. “I wrote a play for the class about Norse Gods. Everyone died in the end except me.”

Eoin followed in his parents’ footsteps and trained to be a teacher but his writing didn't stop and his first book, Benny and Omar, appeared in 1999 and instantly achieved bestselling status in Ireland. Then in 2001 the first Artemis Fowl book was published and he was able to resign from teaching and concentrate fully on writing.

Apart from the hugely successful Artemis Fowl series his books include The Legend of the Worst Boy in the World, And another thing.... and his most recent adventure novel W.A.R.P.: The Reluctant Assassin.

Eoin Colfer was nominated for the 2012 Hans Christian Andersen Award.

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT EOIN COLFER... Praise for Artemis Fowl

“Wildly original… and you thought fairy stories were just for kids.” - T2 (The Telegraph)

“It’s a highly original adventure story with an action-packed plot which twists and turns right to the end – a kind of William Gibson meets the Hobbit/Irish Legends. It has all the right ingredients.” Marc Lambert, Children’s Programme Director at the Edinburgh Festival

“Make sure you buy it!” Denise Van Outen, Channel 4’s The Big Breakfast
