Artemis Fowl

  • (41 reviews)

    Artemis Fowl is a supernatural action series, full of adventure, humour and danger. Described by author Eoin Colfer as “Die Hard with Fairies”, the award-winning Artemis Fowl books have captivated millions of children since their publication in 2001 and are soon to reach an even larger audience with the highly anticipated Artemis Fowl movie in 2020, directed by Kenneth Branagh.  

    Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is a criminal mastermind. Stemming from generations of crooks and gangsters, Artemis is cold, cynical and ruthless. Having discovered that fairies might just be real, he plans his first major heist: kidnapping the fairy leader Captain Holly Short for a ransom of fairy gold. But these fairies are not what Artemis is expecting – they are armed, dangerous and very, very angry. 

    Our anti-hero goes on to battle formidable fairies, goblin gangs, power-crazed pixies, farting dwarves and more in this brilliant eight-novel fantasy series. We can’t help rooting for the unscrupulous Artemis and, as he fights more and more battles in the supernatural underworld, he becomes less of a devious felon and more of a cunning Robin Hood. This is a coming of age story packed with adventure, where nothing is what you’d expect. 

    Irish author Eoin Colfer’s Artemis Fowl series has had huge critical acclaim and won multiple awards, including Children’s Book of the Year at the Children’s Book Awards. The richly imagined world of fairies, dwarves and trolls along with the cliff-hangers, danger and mysteries to be solved make the eight-book-series perfect for imaginative readers from 9 upwards. Both boys and girls will love Artemis’ hilarious and exciting adventures. Start with book one and you’ll race through the series in no time.

    There is plenty for Artemis fans to be excited about with the Disney movie adaptation and a spin-off series coming later this year. The Fowl Twins follows Artemis’ twin brothers in their own epic adventure.
