Details of this

Five lucky winners will scoop The Element in the Room which featured in issue 189 of Nat Geo Kids magazine!

Did you know that without the ‘lead’ in your pencil, there would be no life on Earth? Just about everything in the universe is made from only 92 elements – and from aluminium to zinc, many of them are hiding in your very own home!

Packed-full with beautiful and quirky illustrations by Lauren Humphrey and written by multi-talented Mike Barfield, this is a unique and novel introduction to the elements in the periodic table that will excite all young readers as they join Sherlock Ohms on his investigations to solve the mystery of how absolutely everything came to exist!

Mike Barfield is a writer, poet, performer, songwriter, ukulele player and cartoonist. He has written extensively for TV and radio – with credits as diverse as Spitting Image, The Dennis the Menace and Gnasher Show and five years on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

His cartoon feature Apparently has appeared in the pages of Private Eye for over 20 years, and his drawings have been on display in the Cartoon Museum, the V & A, the Museum of London and Nigella Lawson’s downstairs loo.
