AOK’s Best Books of Summer Series #1

The first in a series (we hope) of guest posts by Aidan on his favorite reads of the summer.

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer
For ages: 12-16 (Editor’s note: according to Aidan, even though he’s only 11!)
Score on a scale from 1 –10: 9, or maybe 10 based on what my mom would call “inappropriate humor”

AOK review:
Artemis Fowl is the ultimate book of fantasy, humor, and seriousness combined. It all starts when a teenage criminal genius kidnaps a magical fairy, and tries to offer her back with the ransom of his mother’s return to sanity…… and, of course, a huge sum of fairy gold. But these aren’t your average kind-hearted, grant-you-three-wishes fairies… for Artemis has single-handedly kidnapped a member of the LEPrecon fairy police… and the LEP is ready to do anything to get her back.

This story is full to the brim of a super-smart thirteen-year-old, a gassy dwarf, a sarcastic (but smart) centaur, and a 7’ 8” bodyguard- all involved in a full-blown war that takes place in a large front yard. It’s awesome and it’s a sci-fi/fantasy lover’s dream come true. There are 8 books in the series so far, and I am currently halfway through the fifth book, which includes a tricky little warlock demon. It’s a great choice for a book and if you decide to read it, I hope you enjoy!
