Review: Moone Boy: The Blunder Years by Chris O’Dowd and Nick Vincent Murphy


Fed up with his life surrounded by abusive women (his sisters) Martin Moone makes the mature decision (well mature for an eleven year old) to get himself and imaginary friend. Cue hysterical tales of misbegotten adventure and wacky circumstances.


The much celebrated Moone Boy: The Blunder Years has been released in book format and it is jolly good fun. It is very much a similar ilk to the Tom Gates books or the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series but actually much better. The comedy is much more fun and at times taboo for the age group – think innocent conversations about pimping your elder sisters boobs out for protection from schoolyard bullies and you will see where I am coming from.

Moone Boy: The Blunder Years, along with its fabulous illustrations, is the perfect book for your younger brother, or cousin or next door neighbour or random kid in need of some giggles. Basically you should just buy this book as a stocking filler for a loved one and then proceed to ignore everyone come Christmas day whilst you sit reading it instead.

Moone Boy: The Blunder Years by Chris O’Dowd and Nick Vincent Murphy is available now.
