Callie Vee, Travis, Granddaddy, and the whole Tate clan are back in this charming follow-up to Newbery Honor-winner The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate.

Travis keeps bringing home strays. And Callie has her hands full keeping the wild animals-her brother included-away from her mother's critical eye. Whether it's wrangling a rogue armadillo or stray dog, a guileless younger brother or standoffish cousin, the trials and tribulations of Callie Vee will have readers laughing and crying and cheering for this most endearing heroine.

        This is a story about life in the country. The story is filled with an array of stray animals, everything from dogs to an armadillo. Science and nature are discussed throughout the book, as well. I think anyone who enjoys science or nature will enjoy this story.

          If you read the first book you know that Calpurnia is the only girl of seven children. And that she wants to be a scientist. If you haven't read the book I just told you the main parts :) In this book Callie discovers that some people think that just because she is a girl she can't be what she wants to be. Can Callie convince her family that girls can do great things to? I liked this book better than the first one.
