Anita Sanchez:
 
Itch! You know the feeling—that tickly, tingly, crawly sensation that you just have to scratch. 
And it’s always in a place just…out…of…reach.
But why do we get itchy? Lots of reasons: mosquitoes, poison ivy, blackflies, bristly caterpillars, cactus, lice. Why do these things affect us so drastically, and how can we stop the itch?
And can itching ever be a good thing?
ITCH! is a nonfiction book that delves into the science behind our most irritating encounters with nature. 
 
“A fun, intriguing, and accessible mix of anatomy and history, with a healthy dose of gross.”–Kirkus, STARRED review
 
“Factual and surprisingly fun, here’s a very readable book about a common experience.”–Booklist, STARRED review
