Successful film and TV star, Chris O' Dowd, collaborates with friend and screenwriter Nick Vincent Murphy in Moone Boy: The Blunder Years , the first in this hilarious, illustrated series.

Martin Moone is eleven and completely fed up with being the only boy in a family of girls. He's desperate for a decent wingman to help him navigate his idiotic life. So when best mate Padraic suggests Martin get an imaginary friend - or 'IF' for short - he decides to give it a go.

His first attempt is Loopy Lou, a hyperactive goofball who loves writing rubbish rap songs. But Martin soon gets fed up with Lou's loopiness and decides to trade in his IF for someone a little less wacky. Enter Sean 'Caution' Murphy, an imaginary office clerk in a bad suit with a passion for laziness and a head full of dodgy jokes. Sean is full of tips and tricks to guide Martin through the perils of the playground, from dealing with his sisters' pranks to beating the bullying Bonner boys. But getting rid of Lou is not that easy, and having TWO imaginary friends is a recipe for trouble!

5 stars
This book is very funny and made me laugh. there are a few rude words and because the boy in it is Irish there were a few words I didn't know. There are little notes at the bottom of the page explaining the Irish words some of these made me laugh. The book has a nice mix of pictures to help the story and I was able to imagine what was happening to the characters very clearly. I liked the story of Martin Moone and his family. I could relate to things that happened to him at school, and his hunt for friends. The descriptions of Martins IF (imaginary Friend)  where funny and made me laugh out loud.
