A Delightful Follow-up to the Newbery Honor Book
Callie V's adventure in the natural sciences continues ... when she isn't keeping her little brother from trying to rescue every animal in Texas. Her life becomes complicated when she learns that not only do her brothers get more allowance than she does, she also won't be going to college. So she sets her mind to earning her own money. Juggling dissection lessons with her grandfather, regular school, her brothers' in-fighting, and helping out the local vet (while staying on Mama's good side), keeps Callie V nothing but busy.
Just like the first book, Curious World is full of adventure, discovery, and fun.
