The Fowl Twins by Eoin Colfer
🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌 We are absolutely bananas about this book!
Eleven-year-old Myles and Beckett Fowl are twins, but wildly different. Beckett is blonde, messy and sulks whenever he has to wear clothes. Myles is impeccably neat, has an IQ of 170 and wears a new suit every day - just like his older brother, Artemis.
Prepare for an epic adventure fraught with danger, impressively high-tech gadgets and two boys who are infuriating beyond measure. But who may just 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...
This is the stupendous follow up to the awesome Artemis Fowl series ( see my earlier review). You should definitely read Artemis Fowl first or you won't be familiar with any of the characters. This series is about his younger siblings: Fowl stereo-type Myles and the slightly mad Beckett. They live a pretty normal life until a troll pops ,or rather flies, into their back garden. Then they're in a world of danger. The text is action-packed yet with the most amazing character descriptions I have seen for a long time. I have to say that it might even top the original Artemis Fowl series. Eoin Colfer certainly knows how to rock the book-world. This is probably a 10+ book as there are quite scary scenes. Happy reading.
