Colfer’s first book in the trilogy is a must-read for middle-aged children. Artemis Fowl is a twelve year old criminal mastermind and genius, who also possesses an impressive vocabulary. He grew up with quite a grudge due to his family losing their fortune, leading him to the events that unfold throughout the book. Through his journey to restore his family’s fortune, he discovers a realm of fantasy creatures living in the real world. After he kidnaps a feisty fairy named Holly Short, he has his work cut out for him. He’s put up against a village of tech-savvy fairies, as well as dwarves, who all give him a run for his money. As unexpected friendships are formed, a story unfolds.
