What are #DomovoiButlerFacts? I hear you ask. Well… ‘Butler facts’ are outrageous facts about everyone’s favourite bodyguard: Domovoi Butler. Outrageous or not, we imagine most, if not all, of the ‘facts’ are true. Our personal favourites are: There is no theory of evolution, just a list of creatures Butler allows to live. and… When Butler sends in his taxes, he sends blank ...Read More »

So we all love Artemis Fowl. Duh. But we also love Domovoi Butler, Holly Short… people like that. There are many loveable people (and fairies) in the Artemis Fowl series. Some are huggable and some aren’t. (I tried to hug Butler before, it didn’t work out.) But we love them all the same. Anyway… introducing the Top 10 Artemis Fowl ...Read More »

(Though there should ALWAYS be time to read the ...Read More »
