Pluto Is Peeved
Pluto Is Peeved: An ex-planet searches for answers - Jacqueline Jules

One of the most stupid decisions of all time is was of course to demote Pluto from planet to dwarf planet. Cixin Liu’s SF series even suggests it will still be spoken of in 200 years! I for one, strongly feel for Pluto, so when I came across this little booklet in which Pluto searches for answers and struggles with the anxiety caused by the sudden change, I just had to read it.

It was a cutesy little book. Pluto, in a Science Museum, is looking why people would be investigating lots of things instead of him. Along the way he discovers that in science people have to changes ideas when new evidence arrives (think Galilei), and makes some friends. As a scientist I totally agree, as a person I feel for Pluto. Luckily its demotion doesn’t mean it will no longer be studied.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Pluto is Peeved is a cute comic book style picture book. Pluto used to be the 9th Planet in our Solar System but has been demoted and he wants to know why. Pluto takes a trip through the museum to find out why he was demoted. On his journey he meets other exhibits from the largest to the smallest to find out why he was demoted. What he does learn is what all Scientists are interested in and learns that he himself is just one of those things. 

 

Cute interesting and educational book. The book has really great comic book style illustrations. At the back of the book there is an Authors note as well as the reason Pluto is no longer our 9th planet. As well as answers to some some of the questions brought p by the other exhibits in the book like dinosaurs and germs. There is also a glossary, further reading and websites to go along with the science brought up in the book. 

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.
