Readers who will like this: Students who like magical creatures and criminal plots will like this book. Boy genius Artemis Fowl is an admirable villain that many boys will appreciate.
Rating/Response: 8/10. Another one of my favorite series from when I was a young lad. Really cool to see how his plan unfolds and there are a lot of action scenes. My one problem is that the plot is hard to follow at times.
One question you would ask before a read aloud: What would you do for a pot of leprechaun gold?
