Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet #1: Skunked! by Jacqueline Kelly
From Newbery honor author Jacqueline Kelly comes Skunked!, a new illustrated chapter book series for younger readers featuring the beloved characters from The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate.
In Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet, Callie Vee, Travis, and Dr. Pritzker help animals big and small.
When soft-hearted Travis discovers an abandoned baby skunk, he can't help but bring him home and take care of him. Stinky, as Travis names him, settles in pretty well. But when Travis discovers Stinky's litter-mate, Winky, who is in need of some help, things get complicated around the Tate house. One skunk is a piece of cake; two is just asking for trouble. Will Travis and Callie be able to keep the critters away from Mother's careful eyes—and nose?
Don't miss the next book in the Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet series: Counting Sheep. And don't forget the Calpurnia Tate books for middle-grade readers: The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate and The Curious World of Calpurnia Tate.
