Reviews

Skunked! Calpurnia Tate: Girl Vet
"Young readers will find Cal and Travis's exploits entertaining, humorous, and informative." --School Library Journal, starred review

"Expect a fresh crop of Calpurnia readers to simply enjoy this on its own considerable merits." --Booklist

The Curious World of Calpurnia Tate

"Animal lovers will revel in the abundant anecdotes about the benevolent country vet and Travis' mangy strays-some heart-wrenching, some hilarious-while learning plenty about nature . . . A warm, welcome stand-alone companion to Kelly's lauded debut." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Well worth waiting for . . . Readers will flock to this sequel for the pleasure of revisiting this beloved character and her world." --Booklist, starred review

"Six years after debuting in Kelly's Newbery Honor-winning The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate, the budding Texas scientist returns, as curious and charming as ever, and now preoccupied with fauna instead of flora." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate:

"The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate is the most delightful historical novel for tweens in many, many years. ...Callie's struggles to find a place in the world where she'll be encouraged in the gawky joys of intellectual curiosity are fresh, funny, and poignant today." --The New Yorker, "Book Bench" section

"In her debut novel, Jacqueline Kelly brings to vivid life a boisterous small-town family at the dawn of a new century. And she especially shines in her depiction of the natural world that so intrigues Callie . . . Readers will want to crank up the A.C. before cracking the cover, though. That first chapter packs a lot of summer heat." --The Washington Post on The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate

"Each chapter of this winning . . . novel opens with a quotation from 'On the Origin of Species'--a forbidden book that her own grandfather turns out to have hidden away. Together they study Darwin's masterpiece, leading to a revolution in Callie's ideas of what she might accomplish on her own." --New York Times Book Review on The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate
