About the Author:

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.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-With rocks and minerals being curriculum topics, libraries are always in need of additional, current resources. These books cover the basic information but they will not engage readers. The reading level is high for the intended age group. The introductions in Crystals, Fossils, and Minerals don't provide adequate descriptions of the relationships among rocks, minerals, and crystals, and at times the information doesn't flow smoothly between sections. The chapter spreads are busy with catchy subheadings, short paragraphs under each heading, sidebars, and activities. The photos and pictures tie in with the texts but are merely adequate. Rock hounds will probably like the "how to be" volume, which does give good information for children interested in the hobby. Steve Tomecek's Everything Rocks and Minerals (National Geographic, 2011) is a better option for curriculum use.-Stephanie Farnlacher, Trace Crossings School, Hoover, ALα(c) Copyright 2011.
