Grade 6–8—Benny Shaw is spending the summer with his lighthouse-keeper grandfather on the coast of Ireland in Eoin Colfer's novel (Miramax, 2007). The boy believes he'll be welcomed by the local children because of his athletic prowess, but he's surprised when he's chosen last for teams, bitten by a dog, and knocked on his arse by a girl named Babe. A tomboy to the extreme, Babe lets Benny know that as a townie, he has little to offer. After several amusing encounters, the duo develop a grudging respect for each other. Babe agrees to take Benny on as a partner in her profitable fishing lure business, but complications arise when a local tough boy decides to take it over. Narrator Euan Morton's Irish accent is spot-on, and after a while listeners will become comfortable with it. A brilliant story filled with humor and joy.—Tricia Melgaard, Centennial Middle School, Broken Arrow, OK

About the Author
Colfer published several award-winning bestsellers, including The Wish List and Benny and Omar, before he started the Artemis Fowl books-all three of which have been bestsellers. He says there will be at least one more book about everyone's favorite criminal genius. Once Artemis becomes the model citizen, I will have nothing more to say about him. But I think he has a few lessons to learn yet.”
When he's not on a book tour meeting his fans all over the world, Colfer lives with his wife and two sons in Ireland. He thinks the best thing about having Artemis Fowl made into a movie is the idea of bringing his kids to see it. Dads aren't very often cool people, but I think I might be cool for a couple of days if Artemis makes it onto the big screen.”
