How does one describe Artemis Fowl? Various psychiatrists have tried and failed. The main crux of the problem is Artemis's own intelligence. He bamboozles every test thrown at him. He has puzzled the greatest medical minds, and sent many of them gibbering to their own hospitals.
There is no doubt that Artemis is a child prodigy. But why does someone of such brilliance dedicate himself to criminal activities? This is a question that can only be answered by one person. And he delights in not talking.
Perhaps the best way to create an accurate picture of Artemis is to tell the by now famous account of his first villainous venture. I have put together this report from first-hand interviews with the victims, and as the tale unfolds you will realize that this was not easy.
The story began several years ago at the dawn of the twenty-first century. Artemis Fowl had devised a plan to restore his family's fortune. A plan that could topple civilizations and plunge the planet into a cross-species war. He was twelve years old a the time...
Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is a millionaire, a genius, and, above all, a criminal mastermind. But even Artemis doesn''t know what he''s taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. Now, Colfer''s complete series is being reissued with an exciting, bold new look.
Annotation:
After his Internet research proves that fairies, sprites, leprechauns, and trolls really do exist, 12-year-old criminal genius Artemis Fowl sets out to steal their vast treasure of gold. Knowing that he needs help to make his plan a success, Artemis kidnaps a feisty leprechaun named Holly Short and soon finds himself involved in a major battle involving satyrs, gnomes, and elves.

Praise

Entertainment Weekly
"The world that Colfer creates is as vivid and fantastical as any shire, Gotham, or galaxy far, far away in recent memory." - Karen Valby 06/05/2002

Kirkus Reviews
"Filled with puns, word plays, and inventive new concepts about the fairy realm, this mix of fantasy and science fiction will delight fans and make converts of new readers. An exhilarating Celtic caper that stands very nicely indeed on its own merits." 05/15/2002

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"A slow, hardware-heavy start thankfully segues into a convoluted adventure of international proportions, with enough races, chases, and near escapes to keep even the most action-addicted reader happy." - Janice M. Del Negro June 2002

New York Times Book Review
"In a nervy and unnerving marriage of style and substance, Colfer adopts the rhythms of macho banter from television police dramas, Hollywood espionage thrillers and B-grade buddy war films....Despite a brave and promising premise, ARTEMIS FOWL is charmless." - Gregory Maguire 06/17/2001
