"The mere fact that author Eoin Colfer is on a national book tour called the Fairies, Fiends & Flatulence tour should tell you something. What exactly can be left up to you, but please take away from the name that he writes in the realm of the fantastic -- with plenty of funny thrown in. Colfer, who lives in Ireland with his wife and two sons, recently released Artemis Fowl: The Time Paradox, the sixth book in his best-selling series about a super-genius boy who happens to be a criminal mastermind. He's announced that it will be his last Artemis Fowl adventure for a while, though he says he will return to the character. Fast-paced, action-packed, and often hilarious, the Artemis Fowl books are just part of Colfer's extensive bibliography: The former school teacher has 16 books to his name, among them Half-Moon Investigations and Airman, two spectacular books for young boys (and, yes, girls so long as they like action and excitement)" .
