Play this video to introduce your students to the magical underworld of Artemis Fowl, the first installment in Eoin Colfer’s classroom-favorite middle grade fantasy series.
How far will one 12-year-old criminal genius go to restore his family’s fortune? Far enough to stir up some magical trouble—and get mixed up with a captivating cast of fairies, centaurs, and even trolls!
After reading Artemis Fowl, the Book Boys get into costume to give readers background intel on the biggest players in Artemis’s most dastardly plot. Play this character-introduction video for your students to get them ready to explore the action-packed underworld of Eoin Colfer’s bestselling fantasy novel.

These five guys, who work in different departments at Scholastic Book Clubs, formed a book group. Each week, they choose a new book to read together. Then they meet, discuss, and create fun and entertaining videos to help kids discover titles offered by Scholastic Book Clubs.
While the Book Boys come from diverse backgrounds and were definitely different growing up, they all have one thing in common: they really want to keep kids excited about books and reading.
