Product Description

Review

"This fantastic book keeps you guessing at every turn and gives you some interesting facts about physics and chemistry." (Young Reviewer, Daniel Wood First News)

"With its explosive mix of action and adventure, chemistry lessons will never be the same again." (Sarah Kingsford Daily Express)

"Mayo's story about the misadventures of a 14-year-old science nut, Itchingham Lofte, whose experiments result in exploding dustbins and "mass puking over teachers", soon had 150 pupils erupting in spontaneous applause. By the time he wrapped things up 40 minutes later, every child wanted his autograph and the queue snaked around the hall." (Evening Standard)

Book Description

The second book in the action adventure series by BBC radio presenter Simon Mayo.

Product Description

After almost poisoning his whole class with arsenic gas, going on the run from a psychotic science teacher and nearly dying of radiation poisoning, life is getting back to normal for Itchingham Lofte - at least, as normal as it can be when you have a round-the-clock detail of government security guards watching your every move.



But sinister forces are still hunting for Element 126 and will stop at nothing to find out where Itch has hidden the precious radioactive rocks. With the help of his sister Chloe and his tomboy cousin Jack, Itch has to put 126 beyond the reach of unscrupulous scientists and international terrorists forever.



It's time to save the world. Again.



The second book in the explosively exciting ITCH series. 'A great debut. You'll be itching to read more.' Anthony Horowitz

From the Back Cover

Element 126

The whole world is searching for it. One boy knows where it is.

If you're hiding the bggest secret in history, nothing can keep you safe . . .
