I bought this book because there was a giant advertisement with Thomas Lennon and his beautiful dog playing in target while I was in the book section. After taking a glance at it’s inside cover and realizing that it was a middle grade book written specifically for me, I figured I needed to buy it. Only on the way home did I realize that there was a review of it from Weird Al Yankovich on the back, which further solidified my feelings.
So I go on library binges. They aren’t as often as they should be, but when I do, I take out a ton of books. Now that I know the size of my library’s graphic novels, I’m set to live out my broke days by just borrowing their books.
So when I was on a binge the other day, I was really excited to see that one of my favorite childhood books was turned into a graphic novel. Artemis Fowl was a series by Eoin Colfer featuring a 12 year old boy (Artemis) who was born into a crime family. The type of crime Artemis is interested in, isn’t the same as the rest of his family, his interest is fairies.
