Moymoy Lulumboy Book 5 - Ang Lihim Ng Libro

Moymoy Lulumboy, the young adult series, which received great reviews from readers and book critics, has recently launched its Moymoy Lulumboy Book 5 - Ang Lihim Ng Libro at the  Meeting Room 4 & 5, 2nd floor, SMX Convention Center, MOA Complex.

Present at the event are media, sponsors, PETA director and performers,  Jomike Tejido (MoyMoy Lulumboy Illustrator)  and the author himself, Mr. Segundo Matias, Jr.

With the growing public interest of this enchanting book, ABS-CBN acquired this Lampara Book's epic fantasy series with the plans of making it into television series, film, digital piece, merchandise and more.

Moymoy Lulumboy Book 5 - Ang Lihim Ng Libro is now available on Precious Pages outlets and other major bookstores.

Prior to the book launch, a short moving staged play was performed by PETA actors to tell the synopsis of the book. The latest installment continues with the journey of Moymoy Lulumboy as he struggles to cope up with the death of his mother Liliw and contend with his legacy as the hero that will save Gabun from evil forces. Moymoy Lulumboy, whose shape-shifting powers resemble that of an aswang, is slowly transfroming into a character with a little darkness and aggression in his soul, but whose kindness and compassion remain throughout the coming-of-age conquest.
