Artemis Fowl (Artemis Fowl #1)

Author(s): Eoin Colfer

Fantasy, Magic and Science Fiction

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!

Kathleen's review - This was originally published 19 years ago and has stood the test of time. I read the series along with my daughter, who was then the target audience, and now her children are the right age! Lots of fun, lots of action, lots of fabulous characters.
