"Everyday stories reminiscent of Ramona in an early chapter book. . . . Colorful illustrations on at least every other page should draw reluctant readers . . . ." Kirkus Reviews.

Pluto Is PeevedPLUTO IS PEEVED:

Pluto is peeved. Who can blame him? He was once considered one of the Solar System’s nine planets but was unceremoniously demoted. “Why do scientists think it is all right to change things?” Pluto asks as he roams the science museum in search of answers.

Pluto Is Peeved!, a comic-book-style picture book, takes you on a scientific journey side-by-side with Pluto, who speaks with other museum inhabitants -- such as a dinosaur, a germ, and the Earth -- and learns what exactly scientists are interested in. The answer is: everything, including him!
