Boffin Boy and the Temples of Mars by David Orme


Boffin Boy and the Temples of Mars 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 Temples of Mars' Boffin Boy and Wu Pee discover some strange buildings on the surface of Mars and decide to investigate. 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. All six books in Set Two have a reading age of 7 - 8.
