Publisher's Summary

Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is a millionaire, a genuis, and, above all, a criminal mastermind. But even Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. These aren't the fairies of bedtime stories, they're dangerous! Full of unexpected twists and turns, Artemis Fowl is a riveting, magical adventure.

A very fun read

This is a totally fun "read" for those times when all you really need is a trip away from the real world--if only for a few hours.

Just as Harry Potter made it seem very natural to have wizards among us this story makes me believe in the world of fairies--to use the book's generic term for all those beings that inhabit our fantasies. From the rock eating dwarfs to the scientific genius of the centaur that works with LEPrecon all the characters are fantastic.

I bought the first book and couldn't put it down, so I had to get the second book as my second selection for the month. I can't wait for next month and the third book of the series. I hope Mr. Colfer writes many more in this wonderful series.
