Pluto got the shock of his life when he was kicked out of the famous nine. His planet status was stripped away, leaving him lost and confused. Poor Pluto! On his quest to find a place where he belongs, he talks to comets, asteroids, and meteoroids. He doesn’t fit it anywhere! But when Pluto is about to give up, he runs into a dwarf planet and finally finds his place in the solar system. This feel-good picture book combines a popular science topic with character education themes of self-discovery, acceptance, and friendship. It has bonus material in the back matter to support curriculum.
Stef Wade is the author of A PLACE FOR PLUTO. Growing up in Des Plaines, IL, she dreamed of seeing her book on the shelf one day. And now her dream has come true! Stef is an alumnus of St. Paul Lutheran School in Mt. Prospect and Maine West High School in Des Plaines. A PLACE FOR PLUTO is her debut picture book and has been chosen by Barnes & Noble for their national storytime on August 11.
