Description

Martin Moone is about to finish primary school and feels he hasn't achieved very much. He's desperate to get his picture on the school's Winners' Wall and decides that entering the Invention Convention science competition will definitely earn him everlasting respect. But Martin - along with his teammates Trevor, Padraic and the ever terrifying Declan Mannion - is having trouble coming up with a winning idea.

Martin's imaginary friend, Sean, comes to the rescue, and together they concoct a plan to beat the snooty kids from the posh school in town. If they can get their hands on some Notion Potion, a mythical brain-boosting beverage, then Martin will have all the ideas he needs. And so the gang embarks on a dangerous (imaginary) journey in their quest to become 'Boyle's first Junior Genius'.

The Notion Potion is the hilarious third book in the Moone Boy series, based on the Sky TV series from dream team Chris O'Dowd and Nick Vincent Murphy

Review quote

The third in the series, this is another riotously entertaining read -- Julia Wills * Carousel * This is a hilarious read that will be loved by children of 8+, even reluctant readers; it's the third in the series and they go on getting better and better. * Parents in Touch * Readers genuinely won't know what's going to happen next, and the copious footnotes provide as many laughs as the bizarre cast of characters and the ludicrous situations that Martin and Sean find themselves in. Inspired nuttiness! * LoveReading4Kids.co.uk * A hilarious read that will be loved by children of 8+, even reluctant readers... Mishaps and mayhem abound. * Parents in Touch * Brought to life by zany illustrations and featuring irrepressible (and sometimes naughty!) Irish humour, Martin's adventures in his amazingly imaginative world are ideal for youngsters who enjoy reading alone. * Lancashire Evening Post *
