Kuya Jun Matias Launches the 6th Book of Moymoy Lulumboy at MIBF 2019

Lampara Publishing's smash fantasy series, Moymoy Lulumboy returns with a sixth installment this month carrying the title Moymoy Lulumboy: Ang Ugat at ang Propesiya. This whimsical novel by  three-time Carlos Palanca Memorial Award author Segundo "Kuya Jun" Matias, Jr. is set to its readers to the world of enchanting mythical creatures and otherworldly adventures made with a Filipino audience in mind.

The book launch is considered to be one of the highlights of the recently concluded Manila International Book Fair (MIBF) at the SMX Convention Center in Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City. Numerous literary award winner Kuya Jun Matias graced the book launch along with book six graphic artist Jomike Tejido, Jaimie Bauza, some fans, friends and colleagues who have been excitedly waiting for the continuation of Moymoy's adventures.

During the Q & A, Kuya Jun revealed that readers could expect a more grownup Moymoy in this sixth book. There might be some shocking surprises for everyone, but he assures that the story will still be something that we could all relate to one way or another.

Highlight of the launch was Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) performance of some of the excerpts from the young adult novel, which we all hope that could happen on a bigger stage.

“Gusto kong gumawa ng isang Yong Adult novel na gaya ng Mga Batang Poz. Yung buhay ng isang teenager o young adult: nag-e-explore, madalas magkamali at pagkatapos ay natututo sa buhay,” shared Matias, Jr.

Kuya Jun is also the man behind the hit online series now, Mga Batang Poz, which is available on iWant TV. And along with this hit project, he also launches two new book titles that kids and parents could enjoy sharing to one another - Angelica, Ang Multo Ng Balete Drive and Moñito, Ang Mabait na Demonyo.

Angelica, Ang Multo Ng Balete Drive, is a story of a heroine broke ghost rules to save a friend’s life, while Moñito, Ang Mabait na Demonyo, a kindhearted demon born without a horn and a tail. The amazing book reading performance of the members of PETA made me so excited about these two new books, to be honest.

Moymoy Lulumboy: Ang Ugat at ang Propesiya, Angelica, Ang Multo Ng Balete Drive, Moñito, and Mga Batang Poz are available on Precious Pages retail outlets, National Book Store, Pandayan book shop and leading books stores nationwide. For inquiries you may contact, inquiry@lamparabooks.com.ph.
