Elements. The Theft of the Particles of Life is a juvenile adventure with the elements of the periodic table as the protagonists of a police story set on the planet that bears their name.

On the planet of the chemical elements, continental policeman Carbo confronts his partner Oxi in the bizarre theft of the particles of life. Together, they will defeat the most feared thieves on the planet: Uranium and Plutonium.

As they plan the tactics that will lead them to success, they show us what they are and what the world they live in is like. The final fight in which Plutonium and Uranium try to fool all the cops with their radiohologramic powers is the crowning moment in which Oxi proves that he is a camouflaged cop who sees what the others are not able to see. The union of the carbons generating a sheet of invisible and ultra-resistant Grafé becomes Carbo's masterpiece to finally arrest the thieves.

The book is also the beginning of a journey through a new language, the language of the elements, which, like that of numbers, letters and musical notes, teaches us the basic and fundamental facts we need to know to interpret our environment and search for what we want to find.
