Waiting on Wednesday - The Curious World of Calpurnia Tate

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share the titles we are eagerly anticipating.

The Curious World of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly. 320 p. Henry Holt & Company BYR, July 7, 2015. 

Publisher synopsis: Whether wrangling a rogue armadillo or stray dog, a guileless younger brother or standoffish cousin, Callie Vee and her escapades will have readers laughing and crying in this return to Fentress, Texas. Travis keeps bringing home strays. And Callie has her hands full keeping the animals—her brother included—away from her mother's critical eye. Will she succeed?

I really enjoyed The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate. I read it in 2010 but did not write a review. I do remember loving the relationship Calpurnia had with her grandfather as well as her budding interest in science. I can't recall where I saw this right now, but I am so thrilled that I did!


  1. Oh doesn't sound like something I'd read but it looks intersting.
