Julia Eccleshare's comment:
A thrilling new crime adventure for the young mastermind genius Artemis Fowl, who stars in this visually dramatic adventure. Artemis must brave the sub-zero temperatures of the Arctic Circle to rescue his father who is being held prisoner by the Russian Mafia. The hero's skilful thinking can get him out of most fixes but even he is challenged when up against his arch enemy Captain Holly Short of LEPrecon. Strikingly told in pictures as well as words, this is brilliant new version of a phenomenal bestseller.

About The Author
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.

“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
