I got to see Eoin Colfer at Electric Picnic this year and he was faaaaaaantastic. He really is as funny live as he is in the Artemis Fowl books. As this year sees the publication of The Last Guardian - the final book in the Artemis Fowl series - it was great to finally see an author whose work I had started reading back in 2001.
I was chuffed then to discover the wonderful Puffin Books Virtually Live website. The website offers a series of free interactive webcasts from Puffin's bestselling authors, including Jacqueline Wilson, Jeff Kinney, Rick Riordan, Charlie Higson, illustrator Quentin Blake, and of course Eoin Colfer. Enjoy!
