Artemis Fowl (Book 1) *****
By Eoin Colfer
MYTHICAL/SUPERNATURAL CREATURES ***
LANGUAGE * (made up word)
I love the Artemis Fowl series! It's hilarious, witty, and exciting. *Note: To distinguish 'made-up swear word', the only word they say it 'D'arvit!', and it is a foul gnomish word. So basically, a made up word that doesn't mean anything.* Artemis Fowl is a multi billionaire, criminal mastermind genius. But one problem: he’s 12. No joke. He has a highly seasoned body guard, Butler, and a mother who is going senile. His father has also been captured by the Russian Mafia. And on top of that, he’s running low on money because his father isn't there to keep up the family business, criminalism. But when he finds out about magic creatures that live underground, will anything stop him from stealing their sacred gold?
