Dear Pluto by Carmen Gloria.

July 1, 2019

plutoDear Pluto by Carmen Gloria. Pub. Uncommon Grammar, 2019.

When the International Astronomical Union downgraded Pluto to a dwarf planet, I was a bit miffed and so was the personalised Pluto in this picture book for juniors.

I mean Pluto has five moons and resides in the Kuiper Belt of asteroids outside of Neptune. But then it is small, is still a part of the Solar system and like the character Pluto in this book, is quite content to be a dwarf planet like the five others in our system.

A lovely characterisation of Pluto that sits comfortably alongside Carmen Gloria’s earlier publication on Mercury. Juniors will love it and it is a simple introduction to a study of the solar system.
