Synopsis

Boffin Boy and the Lost City by David Orme

The Boffin Boy books all feature Rick Shaw, an extremely clever 14 year old who is only interested in science. When his father is killed he vows to use his scientific skills to fight evil - as Boffin Boy! In 'Boffin Boy and the Lost City' Boffin Boy and Wu Pee encounter a door into a lost world. Published by Ransom Publishing, the Boffin Boy series of 12 books is designed for young, independent readers, as well as struggling readers aged 8 to 14. The use of speech bubbles and a simplified Manga style ensure that the books have simple language and low word counts that are ideal for lower reading ages. The first six books in the series have a reading age of 6 - 7 and the second six have a higher reading age of 7 - 8.
