We think of them as ordinary objects, but rocks can do amazing things: there are rocks that glow and rocks that travel through space, rocks that float and rocks that burn. These are only some of the surprises in Weird Rocks, a must-have guide for young rock hounds. Author Michele Corriel introduces readers to sixteen unusual rocks and explains the science behind what each one does and how it does it. Youngsters will discover what makes one kind of rock smell like a rotten egg, what rock acts like a magnet, and what rock contains hidden treasure. High-quality photographs, colorful paintings, and hilarious cartoons add visual delight to this entertaining and informative book.

About the Author:

Michele Corriel is a children's book author and freelance writer living and working in Belgrade, Montana. Her middle-grade novels include Fairview Felines: A Newspaper Mystery and True Lies: A Newspaper Mystery. When she's not out rockhounding with Pat, her husband and favorite geologist, she's probably got her nose in a good book.

Review:

Young sleuths will learn about magnetite, which attracts metal like a magnet; floating balls of volcanic pumice; the crystal treasures just waiting to be discovered inside geodes; scheelite, a mineral that glows blue under ultra-violet light, the sulfur-infused rocks that smell like rotten eggs; meteorites that have landed here from outer space; and the mysterious ringing rocks that make a bell-like sound when hit with a hammer. Kristi Niemeyer --Montana State of the Arts
