Boffin Boy and the Rock Men by David Orme


Boffin Boy and the Rock Men 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 Rock Men' the evil wizard, Red Wolf, is up to his old tricks again - creating hypnotising toys for children. Can Boffin Boy and Wu Pee stop him this time? 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.
