Itch Rocks Press Reviews

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

By the time he wrapped things up 40 minutes later, every child wanted his autograph and the queue snaked around the hall. Evening Standard

A great debut. You'll be itching to read more. Anthony Horowitz
