Staff Reviews

The sequel to the sensational Evolution of Calpurnia Tate continues the story of the indomitable 13 year old Texas heroine. Callie's central relationship shifts from her grandfather (who is still around and influential) to two other family members. Callie's younger brother Travis makes a habit of adopting inappropriate wild animals and she helps guide him through a series of heartbreaks. Meanwhile, the 1900 Galveston hurricane forces Callie to share her bedroom with her now homeless older cousin Aggie with whom she has nothing in common. It is still hard to be a smart and ambitious girl in this family in these times but Callie is not to be denied. A joy and delight, just like its predecessor. — Stan Hynds


Callie Vee, Travis, Granddaddy, and the whole Tate clan are back in this charming follow-up to Newbery Honor-winner The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate.

Travis keeps bringing home strays. And Callie has her hands full keeping the wild animals--her brother included--away from her mother's critical eye. Whether it's wrangling a rogue armadillo or stray dog, a guileless younger brother or standoffish cousin, the trials and tribulations of Callie Vee will have readers laughing and crying and cheering for this most endearing heroine.

In this enchanting middle-grade novel, The Curious World of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly, readers will fall deeper in love with our heroine Callie Vee, as she continues her journey to learn more about the world around her and to deal with her wild family.

"The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate is the most delightful historical novel for tweens in many, many years." --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." --The Washington Post on The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate
