Join the world of Artemis Fowl, the number one bestseller by Eoin Colfer. Now a major Disney film!
Rumour has it Artemis Fowl is responsible for every major crime of the new century.
Just twelve years old and already he's a criminal genius, plotting to restore his family's fortune with a spot of corruption and kidnapping. Kidnapping a fairy for ransom, to be precise. Artemis Fowl has discovered a world below ground of armed and dangerous - and extremely high-tech - fairies. But he may have underestimated their powers. They will fight back. Is the boy about to trigger a cross-species war?
Let the misadventure begin.
