The most famous and best-selling series produced under the name Roy Rockwood was Bomba the Jungle Boy, a boy who grows up without his parents in the jungles of South America for the first 10 volumes and in Africa for the latter 10 volumes.  

The character was used in a series of films with Johnny Sheffield in the late 1940s and early 1950s.  

In 1934, the Fortune magazine article about Edward Stratemeyer and the Stratemeyer Syndicate stated that Bomba was the best-selling boys’ series.
