Kelly, Jacqueline Skunked! (Calpurnia Tate #2), illustrated by Jennifer Meyer. 106 pgs. Macmillan (Henry Holt) 2016. $15.99. Content: G.
When Calpurnia’s brother Travis brings home an orphaned baby skunk, Calpurnia scrambles to help care for the secret pet - an animal no one wants, but is so cute! But when Travis goes back to the hollow tree, there’s another surprise.
The first in a new series (Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet) this heartwarming easy reader is a sweet story with enough action and skunks that the boys will like it too. A spin off of the older reader (The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate) no prior understanding of the book is required to enjoy this fun historical read.
