Meet Itch – a chemistry genius and accidental hero! Science is his weapon. Elements are his gadgets…
Fourteen-year-old Itchingham Lofte loves science. He’s also an element-hunter, collecting all the elements in the periodic table. Which has some interesting (and rather destructive) outcomes in his bedroom. And then Itch makes an incredible discovery. A new element, never seen before. An element with uncanny powers. At first no one believes him, but word of the strange new rock soon reaches the ears of a frightening foe. He wants it for himself – and he’ll do anything to get it. Itch and his family are about to be catapulted into a breathless adventure with terrifyingly high stakes… An edge-of-your-seat scientific thriller by BBC Radio 2 star Simon Mayo.
