Adam is having a miserable day. First, he causes his team to lose the soccer game, and then he gets teased for being the shortest boy in the fifth grade. Just when Adam thinks nothing else can possibly go wrong, Mrs. Gold, his rather peculiar science teacher, makes him stay behind after class. Adam's day goes from bad to just plain weird when Mrs. Gold shares with him a startling secret: she's much more than a science teacher-Mrs. Gold is a powerful alchemist who's counting on Adam's help to save the world!
Mrs. Gold has chosen Adam, one of her best students, for a critical task. She plans to shrink Adam down to the microscopic size of a single atom and send him to the Periodic School for the Elements to search for Ollie, a missing atom of oxygen. Without Ollie, the planet's supply of oxygen will vanish. As Mrs. Gold produces the philosopher's stone, the secret magical tool of alchemists, Adam is suddenly thrust into the bizarre and treacherous realm of chemical elements. He must take advantage of his scientific knowledge to find Ollie before it's too late.
Join Adam on a fascinating journey filled with fun and fantasy as he fights to defend the world from elemental disaster in Adam's Atomic Adventures.
