We took a minibreak road trip to Louisiana last week. Dipping our toes into its history in LaFayette. Exploring the outdoor museums, I found a treasure in Louisiana Folklore. Stories of Compair Lapin reminded me of the stories of Rave and Coyote I have shared previously. Full of cunning, jest, and playing jokes on friends. There were also heartfelt tales passed down from grandparents, sorrowful memories filled with magic.
“Artemis Fowl is a child prodigy from Ireland who had dedicated his brilliant mind to criminal activities. When Artemis discovers that there is a fairy civilization below ground, he sees it as a golden opportunity. Now there is a whole new species to exploit with his ingenious schemes. But Artemis doesn’t know as much as he thinks about the fairy People. And what he doesn’t know could hurt him…”
Eoin Colfer wasn’t kidding. Artemis has high expectations of himself, but he did not know he would take on Holly Short. Artemis’s character made me laugh, but Holly Short is the hero of this book. Through their interactions Artemis starts his journey to becoming a better human and realizing there is more to the world than money and power.
Easter long weekend we escaped the city and spent a day at the Round Top Antique Fair searching for shiny things.
