Artemis Fowl

(4) 4-6 A twelve-year-old criminal mastermind, Artemis Fowl brings the fairy folk to their knees when he kidnaps one of their own. The self-conscious revisioning of the fairy world as a sort of wisecracking police force occurs throughout the novel, stealing focus from the one truly intriguing character, Artemis himself. There's a lot of invention here, but it's not used enough in service to the story.
