Eoin (pronounced Owen) Colfer was born on 14 May, 1965 in Wexford, Ireland and is best known for his hugely popular Artemis Fowl series of children’s books – which have now sold over 20 million copies worldwide.
He published his first book, Benny and Omar, in 1998 and is also the author of the sixth Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy book, And Another Thing… over half of Eoin’s books are New York Times bestsellers.
For a compelling comic strip novel, Artemis Fowl is hard to beat. Adapted by Eoin Colfer and Andrew Donkin and with excellent artwork by Giovanni Rigano, this fantastic graphic novel is amazing. Fans of the award-winning original will be captivated. Criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl takes on more than he has bargained for when he kidnaps a fairy with a difference!
