"The loops, they gave us the loops", said Artimis when he was watching the security camera. This book was about a boy who was 12 years old. He could crack any code! His family was the richest in Ireland! He and his bodyguard, Butler, went on a quest to make his family the richest again. They meet a fairy that gives them a book that tells the fairies secret about where they live. Artemis cracks the code of the fairy language and uses it to help him try to get the fairies gold.
Something special about the book is it has a code on the bottom of the page. I liked the book because it is nerve racking, exciting and it leaves you hanging. My favorite part was when the fairy let in the troll.
I recommend the book to people who like to be on the edge of their seats because Butler almost gets killed.
