itch rocksThis is a sequel to Itch and you really have to have read the first to fully appreciate this one. In a way it is a bit of a re-tread as Itchingham Lofte finds himself facing the same type of villains, for the same reasons all over again.

Itch collects elements and was given a rock, a perfectly ordinary looking rock. But it turned out to be a new element, one that could solve the world energy crisis and also be massively destructive at the same time.

It is a bit of a stretch for the government to not take control of the rocks from the outset and leave it up to Itch and his little sister Chloe and his ever loving best mate and cousin, Jack to save the day but well, refer to Enid Blyton’s Secret Seven for a precedent.
