The Lovereading4Kids comment
Eoin Colfer’s terrific series featuring the teenage criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl has been acclaimed as ‘Die Hard with fairies’! Now that his father has disappeared Artemis must take charge and rebuild his family fortune. Full of lots of interactivity this great new way for kids to read using their Nintendo DS™ enables the reader, in this Artemis Fowl FLIPS title, to spot code notes hidden within the pages and collect them all to decipher and unlock extra stories and interviews with the characters and the author.
Hold your DS like a book, use the stylus or your finger on the touch screen or the direction buttons to turn the pages. Click on links in the text and character profiles, location details and extra information pops up. You can even share a chapter with friends using the DS wireless connections and unlock more bonus content.
Says Eoin Colfer, the author of the massively bestselling Artemis Fowl series:
‘I’m over the moon to see my stories and characters brought to life on the Nintendo DS with EA’s new FLIPS range. Everyone knows that reading improves literacy skills. I have two children who are DS fanatics and cannot wait for the FLIPS to arrive, so EA might finally get them reading my books!’

‘FLIPS is a brilliant way of getting children into reading who may love their DS but may not normally pick up a book. At Egmont we are passionate about bringing stories to life for children, so the development of new platforms for reading are incredibly exciting for us. We are proud to be at the heart of this innovation and thrilled to be a part of this first collection bringing authors such as Enid Blyton to the digital world, and encouraging more children to take up reading for pleasure rather than seeing it purely as part of their homework.’ - Cally Poplak, Director, Egmont Press
‘FLIPS offers a great way to bring books to life on a platform that is incredibly popular with kids. With multiple books on each game card, FLIPS makes a great value gift for children of all ages.’ - Keith Ramsdale, VP and General Manager, UK, Ireland and Nordics for Electronic Arts
‘Our job as publishers is to bring authors' work to as many readers as possible and we are increasingly looking at platforms other than the book to do this. So it's incredibly exciting to be working with Electronic Arts to bring some of the best writing for children to one of the bestselling devices in the world.’ - Jeremy Ettinghausen, Penguin Digital Publisher
