This is a page out of a book called "Grammar First: Grammar Skills in Context Across the Curriculum, by Ray Barker and Christine Moorcroft"

Look at that picture!! Are they kidding me??? Artemis is BLONDE there! And does Artemis dress like that??? And at first I thought Butler was the one in the background, but thats Nguyen! Does the one sitting down look at all like your Butler??? :ph43r:

I know the grammar was the main point of that book, but I mean, they could have at least put in a LITTLE effort with the picture :(

OMG!!! My lover looks like a total GEEK in that picture! You're so right Mike, it looks like whatever drew that picture didn't give a s**t about Artemis fowl or Eoin Colfer! Sorry...*looks guilty for putting those little stars there*

*lol* FAB, I share your stars. S**t! S**t! And $#@k! XD

I bet that whoever drew this picture didn't do much research on his characters. :( S/He just read the passage, and invented stuff. And I bet s/he haven't read Artemis Fowl or know what it is...

That's the worst AF interpretation I've ever seen! Yeah, I agree. They should have put in a LITTLE MORE effort in there. The picture didn't do Artemis & Butler justice at all.
