Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bestselling author Eoin Colfer delights in this hilarious and heartwarming story about the ever-incorrigible Benny Shaw.

Benny Shaw, a sports-obsessed, carefree kid is convinced that he can take on the world--until he spends the summer living with his grandfather and meets resident tomboy and all-around tough-girl Babe Meara.

Benny may be a wise guy, but Babe is at least three steps ahead of him, especially on her territory. When a money-making business venture arises, however, Babe just might consider Benny as her partner, and possibly a friend. But things become complicated, and dangerous, when the troublesome Furty Howlin starts clamoring for a slice of the action.

About the Author

Eoin Colfer used to spend his days teaching elementary school and his nights writing stories. Now he's writing stories full time! If he was not writing, he would still be teaching-or doing his dream job, which is drawing comic books.

Colfer published several award-winning bestsellers, including The Wish List and Benny and Omar, before he started the Artemis Fowl books-all three of which have been bestsellers. He says there will be at least one more book about everyone's favorite criminal genius. “Once Artemis becomes the model citizen, I will have nothing more to say about him. But I think he has a few lessons to learn yet.”

When he's not on a book tour meeting his fans all over the world, Colfer lives with his wife and two sons in Ireland. He thinks the best thing about having Artemis Fowl made into a movie is the idea of bringing his kids to see it. “Dads aren't very often cool people, but I think I might be cool for a couple of days if Artemis makes it onto the big screen.”
