The Lovereading4Kids comment
Winner of the Puffin of Puffins. Chosen as the Puffin Modern Classic 2000 - 2009.
Although only twelve years old, Artemis Fowl is already famous as a criminal master-mind. But, when he kidnaps Captain Holly Short of the LEPrechaun unit in his ruthless bid to steal the fairy gold, he finds he has gone a step too far. In the headlong adventure that follows, Artemis discovers that fairies are not the creatures that he had been expecting.
Fast paced and packed with one jokes after another, Artemis fowl is irresistible humour for young readers.
John Walsh, author and Independent columnist: "Lively, amoral, wildly imaginative debut (six more followed) about the money-grabbing master-criminal Artemis, 12. The author called it 'Die Hard with fairies'."

Twelve-year-old villain Artemis Fowl is the most ingenious criminal mastermind in history. His bold and daring plan is to hold a leprechaun to ransom. But he's taking on more than he bargained for when he kidnaps Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon (Lower Elements Police Reconnaissance Unit). This is a truly modern classic, first published in 2002.
