Summary

Shortlisted for: Children's Book of the Year – Specsavers National Book Awards 2012

A great debut . . . you'll be itching to read more.' Anthony Horowitz Meet Itch - an accidental, accident-prone hero. Science is his weapon. Elements are his gadgets. This is Alex Rider with Geek-Power! Itchingham Lofte - known as Itch - is fourteen, and loves science - especially chemistry. He's also an element-hunter: he's decided to collect all the elements in the periodic table. Which has some interesting and rather destructive results in his bedroom . . . Then, Itch makes a discovery. A new element, never seen before. At first no one believes him - but soon, someone hears about the strange new rock and wants it for himself. And Itch is in serious danger.

It's one of the best audiobooks I've listened to.
The story line is amazing I felt like I was in the story with Itch Jack and Chloe.

Entertaining science with added radiation!

From an 11 year old : really interesting and makes science interesting. It has made me want to find out more about all the different elements.

A gripping and interesting book.

The book has been listened to multiple times by my family and they all love it. Now all I am looking for is the second and third book!
