<a href='http://www.artemisfowl.com' target='_blank'>www.artemisfowl.com</a> - Did it look like the design of that website? :)

Were the different coloured circles balls? And they were linked together? (Like DNA :) )

I just read the front of the Opal Deception. Mine is orange. It indeed says, Opal Wants Revenge in gnommish. John Spiro's book must be a diffrent addition.

The American Version says Opal wants revenge too.

Also, I recently noticed that on the American cover of The Eternity Code ther's also a message: It says "the boy is in trouble". Before I thought it was just random symbols.

Wait, so the gnommish letters really mean something?
Here we go Holly. Are you ready?"
"Artemis! I'm the field agent here," came the irritated reply. "Stay off my band unless you have somthing to contribute."
"I was just thinking---"
"I was just thinking that you should change your middle name to Contol Freak."Artemis glanced across at Butler, who was lying beside him and couldn't help overhearing the entire exchange.
"Control Freak? Can you believe that?"
"The nerve of some people," replied the bodygaurd without taking his eyes off the chateau.
