Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer


Ok, I know I've said it on here before that I don't like fantasy boy book.  I think I've changed my mind.  I love these books.  We listened to the first three books via audio while traveling cross country.  I found myself laughing out loud, and looking forward to getting back in the car so I could hear more!  The eight book series, the eighth book just coming out this year, is about a boy-genius who continues in the family business of ill-gotten gains.  But there is a fantastical element.  It all starts when he decides to kidnap a faery for the ransom and starts a relationship with the Underground World of magical beings.  His writing is crisp, clever, and hilarious.  Check him out!
