Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Artemis Fowl fans will not be disappointed with this graphic adaptation of the popular character from the series by the same name. A brief prologue introduces Artemis and provides the back story for unfamiliar readers. Fans may find it difficult to change their own visual images of the characters in this book as they are brought to life now on the printed page; they may gain some comfort in knowing that Fowl’s original creator was involved in this project, too. The underground fairy world, Fooly’s inventions and Fowl manor are brought to life, as well. The storyline stays true to the plot of the original book, and characters remain the same. The colors of the book are visually appealing, though the frames and text are small. The text size may be too small for some readers. This book is going to be a hit with Fowl fans and is sure to bring the reluctant reader to this fascinating fantasy series. Reviewer: Sue Reichard

Gr 5 Up
Adapted from the fantasy book of the same name, this graphic novel is beautifully illustrated and should prove an enjoyable read to fans and newbies alike. Diabolical 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl is troubled by his father's disappearance, his mother's descent into madness, and the depletion of the family wealth. Determined to solve at least one of these problems, he hatches a brilliant plan to crack the secrets of the fairy world. Excellent use of color and shading gives the panels a tremendous sense of light with enchanting effect. Characters are expressively brought to life with fun, exaggerated style. A great addition is the inclusion of "files" from the fairy police force, with mug shots of criminals/monsters.
