Description

What is Manga? What is anime? What's it got to do with Pokemon, Samurai and the Ninja? Here are the answers. Then read a great Manga story about a new superhero - Boffin Boy, who must defeat an evil robot from ancient Japan, Mogon the Mighty.

This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.
