Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2008 January)

Gr 5 Up— Adapted from the fantasy book of the same name, this graphic novel is beautifully illustrated and should prove an enjoyable read to fans and newbies alike. Diabolical 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl is troubled by his father's disappearance, his mother's descent into madness, and the depletion of the family wealth. Determined to solve at least one of these problems, he hatches a brilliant plan to crack the secrets of the fairy world. Excellent use of color and shading gives the panels a tremendous sense of light with enchanting effect. Characters are expressively brought to life with fun, exaggerated style. A great addition is the inclusion of "files" from the fairy police force, with mug shots of criminals/monsters.—Dawn Rutherford, King County Library System, Bellevue, WA
