Watch the trailer for Simon Mayo’s ‘Itch’

itch-packshotOut this week is Simon Mayo’s new book Itch – an exciting story that Alex Rider fans will definitely want to try!

Out now, the book follows Itchingham Lofte – known as Itch- a 14-year-old who loves chemistry so much that 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.
