Pluto Visits Earth! by Steve Metzger

Hilarious!  I love this take on poor Pluto getting the boot to dwarf planet.  Pluto is shocked when a space rock tells him he has lost his title as "planet".  Pluto plans to fight.  He takes off for Earth to discuss the situation.  Along the way he "orbits" into other planets, etc. along the way.  He asks Neptune first. Neptune though has 13 moons to keep track of and can't help Pluto.  He continues his journey towards Earth, ready for a fight.  Once there he surprises the astronomers and tries to explain his dislike for being changed to a dwarf planet.  A young boy arrives and explains to Pluto that no matter what his title is, he is still his favorite.  This made Pluto feel much better and change his mind about being made a "dwarf plane."  Great fun book packed with factual info about the planets!
