    DescriptionOne dark night on the island of Great Saltee, fourteen-year-old Conor is framed for a terrible crime he didn't commit. Thrown into prison by the dastardly Hugo Bonvilain, Conor is trapped in a sea swept dungeon and branded a traitor. He must escape and clear his name; he wants his old life back - his family, his friends...and his princess. Conor knows there is only one way out. It's an impossible task, which has never been done before. But Conor is determined to do it. He'll have to fly. Swashbuckling new fiction from the amazing Eoin Colfer, ideal for readers aged 11+.

    Author Information
    EOIN (pronounced 'Owen', by the way) COLFER was born and raised in Wexford, Ireland. He began writing plays at an early age, forcing his unfortunate classmates to dress up as marauding Vikings when they would have preferred to be outdoors doing some marauding of their own. As an adult Eoin continued to write and he is now the international bestselling author of the incredible Artemis Fowl series. He has also written the brilliant Half Moon Investigations, several Legend Of ... stories, The Supernaturalist and The Wish List. Airman is his first historical-fiction novel, in which his hero Conor takes to the skies. Eoin lives in Ireland with his wife, two sons and an overactive imagination.
