The origin and evolution of the Moymoy Lulumboy story started when the author was on a plane en route to Frankfurt in Germany for the biggest book fair in the world. Growing in the province, the author became fascinated about the tales and legends of such Filipino mythological creatures and characters about duwende, aswang, kapre and manananggal. Listening to such stories was the inspiration why Moymoy Lulumboy came into existence.

The magical journey of Moymoy Lulumboy was written by three-time Don Palanca Awardee teleplay and screenplay writer Segundo Matias Jr. (Loida: Taxi Driver, Alamat Ng Duhat and #PaperDolls). A student of MA in Creative Writing in Filipino at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, he is currently writing, " Batang Pusit, " an adult themed book about HIV research, his masteral thesis.
The beautiful illustration of the places and characters came to life because of the creative imagination of architect Jomike Tejido who has illustrated over 100 books. Being a painter as well, he uses banig as his canvas. Matias and Tejido collaboration made the book a must read for all ages.
