The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate (Playaway Children)

by

The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate (Playaway Children) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The summer of 1899 is HOT in Calpurnia Virginia Tates sleepy Texas town, and there arent a lot of good ways to stay cool. Her mother has a new wind machine from town, but Callie might just have to resort to stealthily cutting off her hair, one sneaky inch at a time. She also spends a lot time at the river with her notoriously cantankerous grandfather, an avid naturalist. It turns out that every drop of river water is teeming with life all you have to do is look through a microscope! As Callie explores the natural world around her, she develops a close relationship with her grandfather, navigates the dangers of living with six brothers, and comes up against just what it means to be a girl at the turn of the century.
