Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a twelve-year-old evil genius tries to restore his family fortune by capturing a fairy and demanding a ransom in gold, the fairies fight back with magic, technology, and a particularly nasty troll.

Review:

"Hilarious and exciting story." Denver Post

Review:

"Kids absolutely love it." Diane Sawyer, "Good Morning America"

Review:

"The fairy characters are mouthy and eccentric, but Artemis is too stiff and enigmatic to be interesting; the story bogs down when the focus is on him. The combination of choppy sentences and ornate language will appeal to some readers, although not necessarily to Harry Potter fans..." School Library Journal

Review:

"[A] battle of wits, daring, and high-tech gadgetry that keeps readers dangling till the end." Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Review:

"[A] savagely funny page-turner." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Tell readers to suspend disbelief and read this wild and wacky story for the fun of it....Characterizations and dialogue enhance a rollicking tale that will have readers rolling on the floor and eagerly anticipating the planned sequel..." Sally Estes, Booklist

Review:

"Artemis Fowl is great....A new thriller fairy tale that will grab your interest, no matter your age." Liz Smith, New York Post

Review:

"Colfer has done enormously, explosively well....Despite a brave and promising premise, Artemis Fowl is charmless. Nonetheless, young readers may thrill in seeing that the clandestine mysteries of faerie are, like all aspects of our culture, subject to decay in the light of day....What Colfer has done, and very ably, is to pitch a great movie idea. Pure gold, in fact." Gregory Maguire, The New York Times Book Review

Synopsis:

One of the most talked about bestsellers is now in paperback. Twelve-year-old Artemis is a millionaire, a genius — and a criminal mastermind. When Artemis kidnaps a fairy, he must go up against his nemesis, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit of the Fairy Police.

Synopsis:

Twelve-year-old Artemis is a millionaire, a genius — and a criminal mastermind. When Artemis kidnaps a fairy, he must go up against his nemesis, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit of the Fairy Police.

Synopsis:

Perpetual scaredy-cat Conor O'Neill has the fright of his life when a banshee girl named Ashling shows up in his bedroom. Ashling is--as all banshees are--a harbinger of death, but she's new at this banshee business, and first she insists on going to middle school. As Conor attempts to hide her identity from his teachers, he realizes he's going to have to pay a visit to the underworld if he wants to keep his family safe.

"Got your cell?"

"Yeah . . . . Don't see what good it'll do me."

"I'll text you if anything happens that you should know."

"Text me? Javier, we'll be in the afterlife."

"You never know. Maybe they get a signal."

Discover why Kirkus has called Booraem's work "utterly original American fantasy . . . frequently hysterical." This totally fresh take on the afterlife combines the kid next door appeal of Percy Jackson with the snark of Artemis Fowl and the heart of a true middle grade classic.

Synopsis:

Twelve-year-old Trout St. Kroix has been searching for his missing father for the last two years, after his dad disappeared while fighting in the Bot Wars. The Bot Wars began after robots became so advanced that they revolted and demanded more workers' rights, causing the government to declare all robots terrorists and ban them from the Districts. Trout never questioned anything the government told him--even when his own nanny bot was banished--until a vid he posts about his missing dad goes viral and new information pops up. At first Trout is wrenched his dad might be alive, but when his brother disappears, Trout learns nothing is what it seems . . . not even his own father.

Percy Jackson meets Transformers in this heart-stopping, futuristic adventure that will make you question everything you know--and look at robots in a whole new light.

This book is great! It’s about a 12 yr old boy named Artemis Fowl. He wants to steal gold from the fairies to restore his family’s fortune. So he tricks a sprite into letting him copy her secret book and then comes up with a plan to kidnap a fairy. And that started Artemis and his butlers (Juliette and Butler) on their adventures.
I like this book because a 12 yr old boy outsmarts the whole fairy race! And I like how it’s a very realistic fairy tale.
