Boffin Brainchild (Paperback)

Jill Jennings

-   9 years +

With an exciting sci-fi edge, Pinocchio is brought into the modern age in Jill Jennings' Boffin Brainchild!

A brilliantly paced read for reluctant readers, here at Red House we just couldn't put the book down and were kept guessing throughout as a robot decides to escape his place on a museum plinth and get on the school bus with Tom, who until now has been an ordinary boy...

Boffin's not a normal robot - he's been programmed to think and learn just like a human child, so is always looking, listening and copying all those who are around him. He's also very valuable, so Tom tries to hide him as a normal boy... but this can't last very long. How will Tom cope with this new 'friend' who just wants a human life?

Funny, tense and dramatic, this book will not only keep young readers on tenterhooks throughout, but also help them ask questions about science, nature and humanity...

Red House Reader Review

Reader review: Boffin Brainchild - Paperback - 9780955609114

Tom finds himself in big, big trouble when he goes on a class trip to see the world’s first free thinking robot but finds that Boffin, the robot, wants to come home with him. However hard Tom tries he just can’t shake Boffin off. When will the police find out and when they do will Tom ever be let off the hook? Will his parents ever find out? I absolutely loved Boffin Brainchild: it was absolutely hilarious, laugh out loud brilliant and page turningly fantastic. I just couldn’t put it down; it was just so wonderful. It was an easy read that made me want to read more books by the author. If you like Diary of a Wimpy Kid or Barry Loser you are certain to love this. So be a brainchild and go and buy this book! I rate this book a whopping brilliant 5 out of 5!!!
