Calpurnia Tate is back!
Who Gives a Hoot? -- the third book in the Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet series by
Jacqueline Kelly was recently released. Calpurnia is seriously
interested in science, which isn't a popular subject for girls in the early 1900s
in Texas -- when these books are set. She learns as much as she can about science
from her grandfather, and in this book, she tries to save the life of an injured owl.
The first Calpurnia book, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate, received
a Newbery Medal Honor in 2010, and the Girl Vet series follows the same characters,
but is written and illustrated for younger readers.
