I'm a big Artemis Fowl fan too. We got all the series on tape from the
local library and listened to it at home and in the car, my family
loved it. That may be an option for the classroom, as the reader does
an excellent job.
We have only just got the series at our small library, and I would love
to get the class teachers introduced to Arty. Could you pass on any
Fowl information that you receive so I can tempt the teachers.
Thank you in advance

Have a great day!
