Simon Mayo's First Book


itch-packshotOut now, the book follows Itchingham Lofte – known as Itch- who is 14 and loves science, especially chemistry.

But what makes things really interesting is he’s an element-hunter! He’s decided to collect all the elements in the periodic table, which has some rather destructive results in his bedroom!

However, he then makes a discovery – a brand new element, never seen before.

At first no one believes him, but soon someone hears about the strange new rock and wants it for him. And Itch is in serious danger…

Itch is written by Simon Mayo and published by Random House – out now.
