Publisher’s Description

Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is a millionaire, a genius—and, above all, a criminal mastermind. But even Artemis doesn’t know what he’s taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. These aren’t the fairies of bedtime stories—they’re dangerous!

Quotes from Artemis Fowl

“Confidence is ignorance. If you’re feeling cocky, it’s because there’s something you don’t know.”

“If I win, I’m a prodigy. If I lose, then I’m crazy. That’s the way history is written.”

“The problem is that I know the textbook answers to any question you care to ask.”

“Trust me. I’m a genius.”
