reading Artemis Fowl books series new cover art

A Good Book

Is there anything better than finding a book that you love? Maybe it’s an entire series of books that you love? Or better yet, maybe its finding a book series that you and your kids love as well!! I know, that thought almost doesn’t seem possible, but it certainly can be. I am experiencing that very phenomenon right now, with the Artemis Fowl series! That’s why I was all about working on this sponsored post in partnership with Disney Book Group. All opinions and love are my own.

Artemis Fowl

Twelve-year-old criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl has discovered a world below ground of armed and dangerous–and extremely high-tech–fairies. He kidnaps one of them, Holly Short, and holds her for ransom in an effort to restore his family’s fortune. But he may have underestimated the fairies’ powers. Is he about to trigger a cross-species war?

Fresh New Design

I’ve loved the books for a while now, and I don’t like change just for changes sake. That being said, some change can be very good. For example, the new re-designed packaging for Artemis Fowl is really slick and unique. Natalie and I are loving the new look. Each cover just pops now with awesome artwork that really speaks to the fun adventures inside those covers. The complete series in re-designed packaging is now available in stores!


More Goodies

Isn’t a great story with awesome new artwork enough for you? Well, I hope it is, because it’s enough for me. If for some reason it’s not enough to really get you excited, there’s more I wanted to share. More goodies, baby, for you to enjoy!!! Each book includes a sneak peek of The Fowl Twins, a brand-new spinoff novel following the adventures of Artemis Fowl’s twin brothers. How cool is that?? I cannot wait for this new novel to come out. I’m sure it’s going to be just as fantastic as the Artemis Fowl books are!!!

Coming To A Theater Near You

If you are feeling the love from the books but could still use more, I have some awesome news for you. Very soon you are going to get the chance to see all the Artemis Fowl characters and storylines you love on the big screen! You can be right there, immersed in it all. Will the movie be as good as the books? I bet it will be!! Artemis Fowl is soon to be a major motion picture from The Walt Disney Studios in August! Check out the amazing teaser trailer right here and below!!!

The Gnommish Alphabet

How about a little fun?? I just wanted an awesome part of the Artemis Fowl series with you. It’s called Gnommish and “fairy language” used in the books. It is not actually a language, but more of a cipher/code where each symbol represents a letter. Lines of Gnommish run along the bottoms of books one, two, four, five and six. It’s just yet another creative and fun part of the books that keeps it interesting and entertaining book after book!!! Here’s the symbols…maybe we could exchange some messages later? See how you do with the decoding!!
