Product Description About the Author Eoin Colfer used to spend his days teaching elementary school and his nights writing stories. Now he's writing stories full time! If he was not writing he would still be teaching-or doing his dream job which is drawing comic books. Colfer published several award-winning bestsellers including The Wish List and Benny and Omar before he started the Artemis Fowl books-all three of which have been bestsellers. He says there will be at least one more book about everyone's favorite criminal genius. “Once Artemis becomes the model citizen I will have nothing more to say about him. But I think he has a few lessons to learn yet.” When he's not on a book tour meeting his fans all over the world Colfer lives with his wife and two sons in Ireland. He thinks the best thing about having Artemis Fowl made into a movie is the idea of bringing his kids to see it. “Dads aren't very often cool people but I think I might be cool for a couple of days if Artemis makes it onto the big screen.” From AudioFile Fans of Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl fantasy series be forewarned. Colfer has moved into a new genre--realistic fiction. Benny Shaw his parents and younger brother George move from Ireland to Tunisia for Dad's job. Talk about culture shock! Euan Morton tells the story with heart and enthusiasm. His accent takes some getting used to and some of the expressions are unfamiliar but listeners willing to put forth the effort are in for a treat. Morton makes Benny believable as he grows from a sarcastic loner to a compassionate companion. Omar a Tunisian homeless boy who speaks English in the language of sitcoms and commercials befriends Benny and teaches him something about the value of friendship and sacrifice.
