Artemis Fowl -- Book 1 by Eoin Colfer
This softcovered book was printed in 2018. New.
Twelve year old Artemis Fowl is a millionaire, a genius, and -- above all -- a criminal mastermind. But Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captian Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. These aren't the fairies of bedtime stories; these fairies are armed and dangerous. Artemis thinks he has them right where he wants them . . . but then they stop playing by the rules.
Bonus: Can you crack the code? The code that runs along the bottom of the pages of the book (see photo for sample) has been specially created by the author: decipher it to reveal a secret message!
