Boffin Boy


Written by David Orme, Boffin Boy is a series of exuberant 12 manga-style comic books, with 6 at each level. The reading age is 6-7, with an interest age of 8-14. The hero is a 14 year old boy, who's a bit of a science whizz and uses his skills to fight off evil! The books are extremely colourful and the author manages to keep the storyline going, while making sure there is never too much writing on a page to put off those who may be struggling to become readers. Speech bubbles are carefully positioned to avoid confusion and text is on off white/yellowy background to make it easier for those with dyslexia and similar difficultes. There are photocopiable workbooks with lots of black and white illustrations and activities based on the stories plus detailed teachers notes.
