Martin Moone is 11 and fed up with being the only boy in a family of girls. With three elder sisters, he's desperate for a sidekick to help him fight his corner. When best mate Padraic suggests getting an imaginary friend, he decides to give it a go. His first attempt is Loopy Lou, who loves practical jokes and is a dab hand at balloon-modelling.
But Martin soon gets fed up with Lou's clowning around, so selects Sean 'Caution' Murphy instead. Sean is much more up Martin's street - and full of advice about how Martin should negotiate day-to-day life, from dealing with his sisters' pranks to beating the bullying Bonner Boys.
But getting rid of Lou is not that easy, and two imaginary friends is a recipe for trouble!

"Love this story"
Martin and Shaun.
Chris O'Dowd is brilliant! His interactions with the characters were great. They both did a lovely job.
I laughed out loud when I listened to this at work. It was truly enjoyable and laughed so many times when I listened to the antics that were happening with the Moone family.
If you love the show, which is one of my favorites, then you'll love this book. It is geared towards a younger group but since I enjoyed the acting and writing of the show, I thought 'why shouldn't I read this?!?' I just loved it. It gave the tv show a back bone. Thank you O'Dowd for giving this Moone boy a life.
"Chris O'Dowd is hilarious"
Watched and greatly enjoyed the TV series but the book with Chris O'Dowd's narration makes the story infinitely more funny. I found myself laughing out loud throughout surely appearing like a lunatic to the rest of the world. More books read by Chris O'Dowd please!
