A Prickly Problem : Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet
by Jacqueline Kelly and Jennifer L. Meyer




Overview -

In this fourth book in the illustrated Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet chapter book series, a young Callie Vee tackles a conundrum involving the rambunctious family dog and some very prickly quills

When the Tate family dog, Ajax, has a run-in with a porcupine, things get prickly--and dangerous--quickly. It'll take Callie's quick thinking and doctoring, along with a little help from Dr. Pritzker, to make things right. Will Ajax learn to leave other critters alone?

From Jacqueline Kelly, the author of the acclaimed books, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate and The Curious World of Calpurnia Tate, comes a series for younger readers, featuring a smart and spunky heroine and the lushly imagined world of turn-of-the-century Texas.
