But even Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. These aren't the fairies of bedtime stories.

Reviews

Gr 5 Up-Adapted from the fantasy book of the same name, this graphic novel is beautifully illustrated and should prove an enjoyable read to fans and newbies alike. Diabolical 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl is troubled by his father's disappearance, his mother's descent into madness, and the depletion of the family wealth. Determined to solve at least one of these problems, he hatches a brilliant plan to crack the secrets of the fairy world. Excellent use of color and shading gives the panels a tremendous sense of light with enchanting effect. Characters are expressively brought to life with fun, exaggerated style. A great addition is the inclusion of "files" from the fairy police force, with mug shots of criminals/monsters.-Dawn Rutherford, King County Library System, Bellevue, WA Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

A brilliant way to engage young readers in a complex theme and plot. Especially suited to boys who find reading copious amounts of pages 'threatening' or overwhelming. A wonderfully bright graphic novel that captures the essence of each character in a brush (or felt tip pen) stroke! - Suitable for use in upper primary as a serial reader.
