*Soon to be a major film!* Join the world of Artemis Fowl , the number one bestseller by Eoin Colfer. THE FAIRIES ARE IN TROUBLE Goblin gangs (exactly as bad as it sounds) are planning an uprising, and it looks like they've had human help. Holly Short is convinced it's her old nemesis, Artemis Fowl. But, for once, Artemis is innocent. He's too busy getting his father back from the Arctic Circle, where the Russian Mafia (also very bad) is holding him prisoner. All Artemis has to do is clear his name, face the biggest criminal organisations in the world and avoid freezing to death. At least it'll get him out of the house . . . The misadventure continues.
