Product Description

One dark night on the island of Great Saltee, 14-year-old Conor is framed for a terrible crime he didn’t commit. Thrown into prison by the evil Hugo Bonvilain, trapped in a seaswept dungeon, Conor must escape and clear his name. Conor knows there is only one way out. It’s an impossible task. But Conor is determined to do it. He’ll have to fly. A quicksilver tale of aerial adventure from the mega-selling author of Artemis Fowl.

“Colfer animates Airman with a raconteur’s instinct for both grand historical sweep and the tiny quirks that make us care about characters.” Guardian

Eoin Colfer

Eoin Colfer (pronounced Owen) was born in Wexford on the South-East coast of Ireland in 1965, where he and his four brothers were brought up by his father (an elementary school teacher, historian, and artist of note) and mother (a drama teacher). He first developed an interest in writing in primary school with gripping Viking stories inspired by history he was learning in school at the time!

After leaving school he got his degree from Dublin University and qualified as a primary school teacher, returning to work in Wexford. He married in 1991 and he and his wife spent about 4 years between 1992 and 1996 working in Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Italy. His first book, Benny and Omar, was published in 1998, based on his experiences in Tunisia. A sequel followed in 1999, followed by some other books. Then in 2001 the first Artemis Fowl book was published and he was able to resign from teaching and concentrate fully on writing.

Children are guaranteed a treasure-trove of riches from Ireland’s top storyteller. From the hi-tech fantasy of Artemis Fowl to his brilliant action thrillers like The Supernaturalist, Eoin’s books are brimming with action, invention and laughs! Less confident readers can chuckle over the easy-read adventures of naughty brothers Will and Marty, while those who love fairies and fighting are in for a treat with six unstoppable bestsellers from the hit Artemis Fowl series.
