A great introduction into astronomy. Where Did Pluto Go? offers brief descriptions of the sun, moon, planets, comets, and various other objects found in space. It explains the new class of dwarf planets that Pluto now finds itself a member. There are a lot of fantastic photographs that compliment the text.

An excellent introduction to our little corner of the universe. Though it is obviously limited in scope, with several subjects (namely the moons of Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune along with asteroids and Plutoids) being very short-changed, "What Happened to Pluto?" is a very satisfactory way to begin learning astronomy for the lay person.

Where Did Pluto Go? A Beginner's Guide to Understanding the “New Solar System” by Paul Sutherland (Reader's Digest Books 2009) (523.2). Interesting and full of pictures, this book is just what it claims to be. My rating: 6/10, finished 2010.

I took this book because I am a Neil DeGrasse Tyson. The computer pulled this listing when I searched by author. Neil however only did the forward. I did read the surprisingly small book, but it did not give any really new information.
