Wu Pee feels like an adventure, but is far too scared to go by himself. He persuades Boffin Boy to help him find Tickel-My-Tum, a lost city full of treasure. But the terrifying Mongolian Death Worm really doesn't like treasure hunters! When Red Wolf appears there too, Wu Pee's adventure turns nasty. The Boffin Boy books all feature Rick Shaw, an extremely clever 14 year old who is only interested in science.

The speech bubbles and a simplified Manga style ensure that the books have simple language and low word counts to appeal to newly independent and struggling readers.
