These fairies are armed and dangerous. And they don’t play by the rules…

Author/Illustrator

Eoin Colfer

18060 eoin colfer 206752

Eoin Colfer (pronounced Owen) was born in Wexford on the South-East coast of Ireland in 1965, where he and his four brothers were brought up by his father (an elementary school teacher, historian, and artist of note) and mother (a drama teacher). He first developed an interest in writing in primary school with gripping Viking stories inspired by history he was learning in school at the time!

After leaving school he got his degree from Dublin University and qualified as a primary school teacher, returning to work in Wexford. He married in 1991 and he and his wife spent about 4 years between 1992 and 1996 working in Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Italy. His first book, Benny and Omar, was published in 1998, based on his experiences in Tunisia. A sequel followed in 1999, followed by some other books. Then in 2001 the first Artemis Fowl book was published and he was able to resign from teaching and concentrate fully on writing.

Children are guaranteed a treasure-trove of riches from Ireland’s top storyteller. From the hi-tech fantasy of Artemis Fowl to his brilliant action thrillers like The Supernaturalist, Eoin’s books are brimming with action, invention and laughs! Less confident readers can chuckle over the easy-read adventures of naughty brothers Will and Marty, while those who love fairies and fighting are in for a treat with six unstoppable bestsellers from the hit Artemis Fowl series.

    This is a truly amazing book of a 12 year old criminal, Artemis Fowl. Filled with laser guns, 6 foot tall bodyguards, farting dwarfs, and red faced commanders and don’t forget the jokes!! This book is written in such a way that people who like fantasy can read it and sci- fi dudes too! It is such a well written book that can be brought to life effortlessly. Reading Artemis Fowl virtually transforms my brain into a screen where I can visualize the characters coming to life. Anyone would get obsessed with this one for sure!!!
