Kids at The Shelf: Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
Publisher: Puffin
Reading Level: Middle Grade (10-12)
Pages: 304
Review by: Grace (11 yrs)

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). For a start, leprechaun technology is more advanced than our own. Add to that the fact that Holly is a true heroine and that her senior officer Commander Root will stop at nothing to get her back and you've got the mother of all sieges brewing!

Grace, age 11
Wow! This book was amazing. Between the action and commotion you can hardly catch your breath to stop reading. You'll want to know what's next in the book. I loved it and you will love it too. Artemis is the youngest criminal mastermind in the world because he is only 12! He will probably scare you will his expansive knowledge. Anyone with interest in faeries, magic, and the evil side of the world will never be able to put this book down.

  1. I had to read this book for my work when I worked at WHS so I could compare it to Harry Potter. The one liner I came up for it was "Fairies with kick butt attitude!"


I love to hear what you think.
