Summary

Calpurnia, Callie Vee, es una niña que vive en un pueblo de Texas. A pesar de que su madre insiste en que aprenda a tocar el piano, coser y cocinar, ella está más interesada en lo que ocurre tras la puerta cerrada de la biblioteca, o en el laboratorio de su abuelo. Poco a poco irá ganándose a este señor un tanto huraño y empezará a colaborar con él en sus observaciones del medio natural, aprenderá quién es Darwin, qué son las especies y las subespecies, y también lo idiotas que se vuelven los hermanos mayores cuando se enamoran.

«La evolución de Calpurnia Tate es la novela más deliciosa que he leído en muchos, muchos años... La lucha de Callie porque le permitan tener curiosidad intelectual resulta refrescante, divertida y muy acertada incluso para la época en que vivimos.» -The New Yorker                                

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Calpurnia Virginia Tate is eleven years old in 1899 when she wonders why the yellow grasshoppers in her Texas backyard are so much bigger than the green ones. With a little help from her notoriously cantankerous grandfather, an avid naturalist, she figures out that the green grasshoppers are easier to see against the yellow grass, so they are eaten before they can get any larger. 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.
