Natalie Hyde was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick, and grew up in Galt (now Cambridge), Ontario, where she still lives. She spent most of her childhood collecting crickets, toads and tent caterpillars. The rest of the time she practiced being a genie. When that didn't work out, she studied languages at the University of Waterloo. Natalie lives with her husband and four children in a house with too many stairs, which they share with a little leopard gecko and a cat that desperately wants to eat him. I Owe You One is Natalie's first book for Orca. To learn more about Natalie, please visit www.natalaliehyde.com.
Children are fascinated by nature, and the Extreme Nature series introduces readers to life in extreme environments. In this title, Hyde captures interest with vivid photos and facts about the challenging conditions found in the desert. Using a sandy color scheme and numerous full-color photographs from deserts around the world, she introduces this biome in an engaging way. Divided into three main chapters that focus on a particular aspect of desert life, such as plants, animals, and people, the book also includes quick sidebars like Fast Facts, In the Extreme, and Vital Statistics. The glossary and the index are thorough, and further resources, both print and online, are listed. This title will be a worthwhile and popular addition to a collection for budding scientists and explorers. Grades 2-5. --J. B. Petty
