The Lovereading4Kids comment

Fletcher Moon is a twelve year old private detective: with a dozen successful investigations under his belt, he’s planning to head for the big time. No more kids’ stuff for him. Moon wants real cases and real money. With Doobie Doyle, an eight year old with sharp eyes and a big mouth as his best informant, Moon gets cracking on some serious business. Eoin Colfer has perfected the detective story in this hilarious and crisply told adventure that spins out at a cracking pace. This title is also available on audio CD.

Synopsis

Half Moon Investigations by Eoin Colfer

Meet Fletcher Moon. Half-pint schoolboy and fully qualified private investigator. Since graduating online, he has solved all sorts of minor mysteries at school and at home. It was only a matter of time before things got serious. When Fletcher starts asking questions about a spate of odd crimes in the town of Lock, it quickly becomes clear that nothing is quite as it seems. And the hunter is about to become the hunted.

Reviews

Praise for Half Moon Investigations: 'Repartee, irreverence, a zippy pace and suspense will leave the readers wanting more' - Irish Times Praise for Artemis Fowl: 'Fast-paced, tongue-in-cheek, with laugh-out-loud jokes. Smart and page-turning' - Sunday Times 'Fast, funny and very exciting' - Daily Mail

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
