After listening to Nomadlands I wanted something light and fun (also because I was ill with Covid at the time and not concentrating super well) and this kids book was perfect. I’m a fan of Eoin Colfer of old – my favourite of his books (and one of my favourite books ever) is the less well known young adult novel The Wish List. I’ve enjoyed the Artemis Fowl books as well, and so I gave this off shoot about Artemis’s younger twin brothers a go.
As I hoped, it was fun – witty with sometimes irreverent humour and a nice Irish narrator. The twins are both ‘special’ in their own way, and their bond is sweet and uplifting and of course I love anything with magical folk involved.
