Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet
Henry Holt & Co. Books for Young Readers
October 4, 2016
From Newbery honor author Jacqueline Kelly comes a new illustrated chapter book series for younger readers featuring the beloved characters from The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate. In Calpurnia Tate, Animal Doctor in Training, Callie Vee, Travis, and Dr. Pritzker help animals big and small.
When soft-hearted Travis discovers an abandoned baby skunk, he can’t help but bring him home and take care of him. Stinky, as Travis names him, settles in pretty well. But when Travis discovers Stinky’s litter-mate, Winky, who is in need of some help, things get complicated around the Tate house. One skunk is a piece of cake; two is just asking for trouble. Will Travis and Callie be able to keep the critters away from Mother’s careful eyes—and nose?
“Readers need not have read Kelly’s The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate to enjoy this charming selection. Young readers will find Cal and Travis’s exploits entertaining, humorous, and informative.” ―School Library Journal, starred review
