One thing you might know about me is that I am a huge fan of the Artemis Fowl books series by Eoin Colfer. The fact that Disney is making this in to a major motion picture has me counting down the days! When they pushed it from summer 2019 to spring 2020, I admit, I was a little heartbroken. I have been dying to see some of my favorite characters on the big screen! But luckily, I now have The Fowl Twins to occupy my time while I wait. The book is in stores now, so make sure to grab your own copy!
The Fowl Twins is a book based on Artemis’ younger twin brothers – embark on a new adventure featuring fairies, trolls, and the Fowl family! This book arrived on my doorstep and I finished it in two days. Now my oldest daughter is reading it, and loving it. She is a big Artemis Fowl fan, like her mama, so she was super excited to check it out.
Our Thoughts On The Fowl Twins
The Fowl Twins channels all that was amazing about the Artemis Fowl series. Reading it brought me back to reading the original series when I was in high school. This is easily one of my favorite series to read. I mean, I have read through it three times. And I am now looking forward to reading more and more about the Fowl twins! They sure do take after their older brother.
I absolutely loved stepping back in to the familiar world with a brand new story. If you are an Artemis Fowl fan, you are sure to love The Fowl Twins!
My daughter is only part way through The Fowl Twins and she loves it already. The recommended age is 9 to 12, but she is 8 and soaks it all in. She doesn’t have a hard time with any of the words, either. If you have a little one who is interested in reading The Fowl Twins, you might want to read it through first, but there was nothing that worried me about her reading it as far as subject matter goes.
The Fowl Twins Book Synopsis
With all the hallmarks that made the Artemis Fowl series so popular, this hilarious spinoff adventure stars Artemis’ younger brothers, along with a nefarious nobleman, a shadowy nun, and a fairy intern, and a maverick troll.
One week after their eleventh birthday, the Fowl twins – scientist Myles, and Beckett, the force of nature – are left in the care of house security (NANNI) for a single night. In that time they befriend a troll who has clawed his way through the earth’s crust to the surface. Unfortunately for the troll, he is being chased by a nefarious nobleman and an interrogating nun, who both need the magical creature for their own gain, as well as a fairy-in-training who has been assigned to protect him.
The boys and their new troll best friend escape and go on the run. Along the way they get shot at, kidnapped, buried, arrested, threatened, killed (temporarily), and discover that the strongest bond in the world is not the one forged by covalent electrons in adjacent atoms, but the one that exists between a pair of twins.
