Jacqueline Kelly is a New Zealand-born American writer of children's books.
In 2009 her first novel, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate, was published. It tells the story of a young girl growing up in Texas in 1899, learning what it means to be a woman in turn-of-the-century America, and learning about science and the natural world from her grandfather. It was a Newbery Honor Book, one runner-up for the annual Newbery Medal. A follow-up, The Curious World of Calpurnia Tate, has recently been published and is out.
Kelly has also written a sequel to The Wind in the Willows called Return to the Willows, published in October 2012.
