"For the better part of forever, Pluto was a planet. One of the Famous Nine." **shoots judgmental side eye towards Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson** #teamplutoshouldbereinstatedasaplanet

One of a few dozen different books that dramatize Pluto's new status as a dwarf planet and try to offer some reassurance that Pluto is still loved. While humorous in its personification of the planets, the real value of this story is the way it instructs kids of all the kinds of celestial bodies --from moons to meteoroids--that are similar to Pluto but are still categorically different. At the same time, this particular take on Pluto's identity crisis can also be seen as a good lesson on how important representation can be for those who are different.

A brief explanation of why Pluto isn't considered a planet; cute and very anthropomorphized. Humorous comments hint at patterns and movements of the other celestial objects.
