Artemis Fowl

Young readers » Series » Artemis Fowl

Rumor has it Artemis Fowl is responsible for every major crime of the new century.

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!


Written by Eoin Colfer.

Recommended for readers aged 8 - 12. The film adaptation of Artemis Fowl will be released on Disney+ in 2020.
