Quotes & Awards

  • “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…Happily, the episodic narrative leaves the door wide open for further adventures—if we’re lucky.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Humor and little heartbreaks abound as Callie learns animal care under the tutelage of Dr. Pritzker, the town’s veterinarian…Recommended for fans of the original novel and strong readers who enjoy character-driven narratives.”

    School Library Journal (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)

  • “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 (“from pond water up to the stars”), the deadly 1900 Galveston hurricane, and early Texas history as recounted by Callie’s scholarly and beloved Granddaddy. A warm, welcome stand-alone companion to Kelly’s lauded debut.”
