Just looking at the periodic table can be enough to give young science students a serious headache. But as you'll soon find out, all those mysterious numbers and letters are clues to the amazing world of elements. The brainchild of Siberian superchemist Dimitri Mendeleev, the periodic table represents the 111 known elements, from hydrogen and oxygen to nobelium and lawrencium. But this doesn't mean there are only 111 elements in the universe. One or more elements might still be out there just waiting to be discovered! Elements make up everything we see in the world around us, and believe it or not, each has a unique personality that makes it as interesting as it is useful for fulfilling its role in the world. The Periodic Table is a fun-filled way to learn about the elements and understand why they are so important. Narrator L.J. Ganser conveys the book's infectious enthusiasm with a reading bound to capture listeners' interest. "The periodic table may be the bane of newbie science students, but The Periodic Table: Elements with Style! ... aims to change that."-Publishers Weekly
