Moone Boy Halloween Costume Inspiration for Kids

Whether you're getting ready for World Book Day or Halloween, who better to turn to for costume inspiration than the Bonner Brothers.


A year is a very long time when you're an idiot. To cope with the curse of the calendar, Martin Moone has developed the habit of dividing the year into smaller sections, or "Yections".

To celebrate the publication of Moone Boy: The Marvellous Activity Manual, we have gone one step further and divided the whole year into one marvellous week of "yections:; blogs to showcase just some of the brilliant activities that can be found inside this ultimate companion guide for Moone Boy fans for every "yection" all year round.

With Halloween just around the corner, where better to look for costume inspiration than Yection 6: Wonder What Happened to the New School Year, with thanks to the Bonner brothers for their crafty crafting tips!

Make a scary Halloween mask based on what we think Trevor's imaginary friend, Loopy Lou, looks like – or what we think he should look like.

Moone Boy: The Blunder Years

by Chris O'Dowd

Book cover for Moone Boy: The Blunder Years

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!
