Calpurnia Tate

About this Series

Jacqueline Kelly introduced readers to Calpurnia Tate in Newbery Honor-winner The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate. This series of historical middle grade novels brings turn-of-the-twentieth-century Texas to life as Callie and her family explore the natural world around them, inspiring the eleven-year-old girl to learn about and help the wildlife right in her own backyard.

“Callie’s struggles to find a place in the world where she’ll be encouraged in the gawky joys of intellectual curiosity are fresh, funny, and poignant today.”—The New Yorker
