Boffin Boy

Boffin Boy

One of Ransom's best-selling series, Boffin Boy is great for getting boys reading. These books are action-packed comic-style page turners, with plenty of humour.

The 'manga' style is really popular with reluctant and struggling readers. But the books are carefully designed with good fonts, lower case text, speech bubbles and captions to make them accessible to pupils with a lower reading age.

The reading books are supported by photocopiable workbooks containing worksheets specific to each title, plus detailed teacher's notes and resources for readers to create their own Boffin Boy stories.

  1. Comic format to engage reluctant readers
  2. Simple layouts and carefully levelled texts
  3. Fantastic, striking illustrations
  4. Selected by the Book Trust five years in a row
  5. One of the Times 'Top 100 books for boys'

Series Reviews

Boffin Boy is excellent because the characters are fun, especially Wu Pee, and the tasks we have to do are great – they make me feel like I'm part of the story.

- Boffin Boyz Reading Group Member, Holy Trinity Primary School, London

Very imaginative, and the pictures help you understand the story. They don’t have heaps of writing so it is easy to understand.
