Pluto's Secret

Pluto’s secret: An Icy World’s Tale of Discovery

This book gets top marks from my little space cadet. It tells the complete story of Pluto – predictions, discovery, naming, and it’s ultimate demotion. The story is engaging and covers a lot of science.


Pluto Visits Earth

This book is a nice introduction to the planet and why it was demoted down to dwarf planet. Great for the youngest space cadets and those just getting their feet wet.


The Planet Hunter

The Planet Hunter: The Story Behind What Happened to Pluto

Another Isaacs’ household favorite. This is the story of astronomer Mike Brown. He discovered many dwarf planets, including Eris whose size rivaled Pluto’s and set off the planet debate. This is a great story and also a good peek into how scientists work.
