The Lovereading4Kids comment

The second book in the truly breathtaking Artemis Fowl series. This time we see the evil Irish criminal mastermind go after an evil pixie, the Russian mafiya and his school counsellor. Eoin Colfer takes a move away from the terrifically bizarre nature of the first book and adopts something a little more like a standard adventure novel. The character of Artemis is explored on a deeper level in this wonderful follow-up.

Artemis Fowl And The Arctic Incident: Book 2 by Eoin Colfer

Someone has been supplying Class A illegal human power sources to the goblins. Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit is sure that her arch-enemy, 13-year-old Artemis Fowl, is responsible. But is he? Artemis has his problems to deal with: his father is being held to ransom and only a miracle will save him. Maybe this time Artemis needs help.

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
