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! 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 (published Spring 2007) have a reading age of 6 - 7 and these second six have a higher reading age of 7 - 8.
