Game Boy on Artemis Fowl

My son, nicknamed here Game Boy, enjoys reading the Artemis Fowl series. Here is what he had to say in a recent interview.

Q. When and where did you first discover Artemis Fowl?
A. I don't remember.

Q. How many of the Artemis Fowl books have you read?
A. All of them except the most recent (which will hopefully change soon).

Q. Who is the main character in the books and what's he like?
A. The main character is Artemis Fowl. He's about my age but that doesn't stop him from being a super genius and having a large vocabulary.

Q. What is the setting for Artemis Fowl and what is good about it?
A. It's in Ireland, but it's not realistic. It has fairies in it - generally they are good fairies just trying to stay away from the human race. It's got a nice storyline as well as having some humor.

Q. What is the book basically about?
A. In the first book he kidnaps a fairy in hopes of getting large quantities of gold. It doesn't quite turn out the way he expected.

Q. How many times have you read this book?
A. I've read the first one two, three, or more times.

Thanks Game Boy. By the way, there are six books in the Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer. The most recent book is The Time Paradox. Here are a few related learning links:
