    DescriptionAuthor Benjamin Wiker leads the reader on a delightful and absorbing journey through the ages, on the trail of the elements of the Periodic Table as we know them today. He introduces the young reader to people like Von Helmont, Boyle, Stahl, Priestly, Cavendish, Lavoisier, and many others, all incredibly diverse in personality and approach, who have laid the groundwork for a search that is still unfolding to this day. The first part of Wiker's witty and solidly instructive presentation is most suitable to middle school age, while the later chapters are designed for ages 12-13 and up, with a final chapter somewhat more advanced.

    Review quote
    "I read the manuscript aloud to children age 10-15. They understood the material quite well and enjoyed the humor. It is interesting from a historical point of view--I learned a lot myself!--and it provides a basic understanding of the periodic table and atomic theory."
