About the Author
Eoin Colfer followed his parents into teaching and soon began to invent stories for his pupils. His first novel, BENNY AND OMER, was a bestseller in Ireland - like ARTEMIS FOWL, it was written after a day's teaching and after his young son's bedtime. Eoin lives in Wexford, Ireland. ARTEMIS FOWL was shortlisted for the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year and won the WHSmith Children's Book of the Year Award. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The only real and apparant flaws in this book (and the price) is because the packaging costs basically half the price of the book. The packaging is shiny, heavy, and sparkly. This, along with the quality of the paper, makes the book cost a lot more money. However, for Artemis Fowl fans, the context in this would impress even without a cover!
In a way, this is a waiting book: a book 3.5 for people waiting Artemis Fowl no.4. This book will take some time to come out mostly owing to the fact that The Supernaturalist, another brillaint book by Eion Colfer was written and published after Artemis Fowl 3: the eternity code.
Overall, this book isn't a fully-fledged adventure as in the previous 3 Artemis Fowl books. It is just two mini adventures put together along with a few puzzles, diagrams of inventions, and crosswords, published in one book.
It is worth the money for all the Artemis Fowl fans out there, but otherwise, it isn't a neccesary addition to your book collection.
Both stories were very witty, as expected, and its been great fun using the codes to break the messages in the books, so far I've learned when Artemis Fowl first came to press attention, the delights of stingworms and all about the game of Bottom Up!
I'd forgotten it was the US version and couldn't understand why Artemis gave Mulch a Check instead of cheque but pedantics aside if you like to get a bit of background into the workings of Artemis Fowl this is a really good purchase.
