The Pluto Files In August 2006, the International Astronomical Union voted Pluto out of planethood. It is a wonder Pluto has any fans, yet during the debate over Pluto's status, people rallied behind the extraterrestrial underdog. This book explores the history of planet classification and America's obsession with the 'planet' that has been judged a dwarf. Full description

Review:

Wonderfully entertaining.... Uses an engaging mix of facts, photographs, cartoons, illustrations, songs, e-mails, and humor to explain what's up (and down) with Pluto.... The Pluto Files is positively transporting. Out of this world. --Heller McAlpin
