About this book
Successful first children's novel, now in paperback, from the popular DJ, presenter of Radio 2's "Drivetime", and of the Mayo and Kermode film review on Five Live. Itch is an accidental, accident-prone hero. Science is his weapon. Elements are his gadgets. He's a new kind of real-life hero, an ordinary boy with a passion for chemistry, and readers will instantly empathise with him. Ages: 9+ 'A great debut. You'll be itching to read more' Anthony Horowitz
Itchingham Lofte - known as Itch - is fourteen, and loves science, especially chemistry. He's also an element-hunter: he's collecting 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.
