The Fowl Twins is a spin-off from the eight-volume Artemis Fowl science fantasy series created by Eoin Colfer for readers in grades 5 to 9.  The new book features Artemis’s younger twin brothers. 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, and killed (temporarily), and they 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.

Tickets are $25 for adults; $15 for ages 16 and younger.
