Boon on the Moon is a work of children’s fiction focused on science fiction and space travel, penned by author John Huddles as part of The Booniverse. The central titular character is Byron ‘Boon’ Barnett, a highly imaginative boy who is often told off for getting carried away by his own overactive thoughts and excitable temperament. But when Boon gets to board a rocket ship and move with his family to a new lunar colony called Cosmopolis, excitement is the order of the day. That is until Boon realizes that a huge disaster is brewing, one which will see him face life or death challenges to save his brand new homeland.
Author John Huddles has a great sense of what will captivate middle-grade readers in this fun and high-octane adventure novel, especially for those extra-active and rambunctious boys who usually wouldn’t want to sit down and read a book. Byron ‘Boon’ Barnett represents his audience well, and the narrative is chock-full of fun moments of Boon getting into trouble and getting totally carried away with the adventure of it all. But the plot is also well balanced, and it gradually develops into a strong story with high stakes consequences and plenty of new ideas to discover once readers are invested in the events unfolding. I liked the overall message and what Boon and his behavior represent, and the space-age world in which the story is set is sure to be a hit. Overall, Boon on the Moon is a fantastic tale for MG readers to devour.
