    Pluto is Peeved! but I'm not! Jacqueline Jules brings science to life in a nerdier version of Night at the Museum. Planets and other exhibits roam the library learning about how scientist are always changing their views based on new research. Some of the exhibits benefit while others, like Pluto, feel slighted. This book is in a graphic novel format and we follow Pluto through the museum. Dave Roman's illustrations are simple but effective and welcoming.

Pluto is trying to figure out why he has been demoted and why nobody is interested in him anymore. Ultimately, good science studies everything and Pluto is pleased. Another great aspect of this book is the scientific explanations at the end for those who want to no more about each exhibit visited as well as the sources documented, including websites for further study. This would be a great book for a science classroom as well as an English classroom when studying ways of storytelling as well as citations.

    I cannot figure out what the target age is for Pluto is Peeved! My five-year-old niece didn't really follow the story very well as she has always known Pluto as a 'non-planet'. So she couldn't connect with the idea that he was once a planet and my friends nine-year-old thought it was a bit too childish for him. Comic Book Style I'm all for comic books. I own (a lot) of them myself and most have been acquired recently (long after I was a child). So I think the layout and drawings are brilliant.

I own (a lot) of them myself and most have been acquired recently (long after I was a child). So I think the layout and drawings are brilliant. It's clear that Dave Roman wants you to see Pluto like a child that doesn't get it. One who acts out and cannot get on board with any sort of change. This is relatable for many children and so I thought the illustrations and set-up for the book were very well done. But Who Really Cares? If a five-year-old finds the book too hard to get into and a nine-year-old finds the book too 'childish' I'm not sure who the real audience is. And without an audience does anyone really care how cute or well illustrated the book is? Overall While adorable and a great little story, that I can appreciate as an adult, I certainly don't need this story in this format to understand the reasons why Pluto was demoted. And even though (personally) he got screwed out of planetary status (lol) I just didn't think Pluto whining about it and eventually feeling gratified by attention was: a) a story I want children to feel connected with (you shouldn't need constant validation in life to feel important); b) a format of story that would connect with most children who didn't know Pluto was ever a planet. It reminds me a bit of the situation when I was a child and the USSR was breaking-up. I didn't really care, but was interested in all the new names and flags of the countries. However the reality was that it didn't affect my day to day life as a Canadian child and so whether a cute book laid it out for me or not I just can't imagine child me connecting with the change. Much later as a teen, when it was Olympic hockey time, I started to appreciate and understand what it meant for the USSR to have broken up; from both a political, cultural and identity perspective. And yes of course it was via hockey; because here in Canada it is a religion for many. Maybe if you have a child who is obsessed with space or science it would be a good buy. But for your average kid I just don't see a lot of concrete value here.

    4/5 stars I received a free copy of this book on Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This is an adorable and informative look at Pluto, dwarf planet and, most recently, kicked out of the solar system.

'Pluto is Peeved!' follows Pluto as he travels around a science museum, interacting with a whole range of exhibits to figure out why his status was changed. A lot of detail has gone into this book- not only is it friendly for much younger children, it also has more information in the back pages for anyone wishing to find out more detailed histories of the exhibits. I actually found out quite a lot reading this, including that Brontosaurus's are no longer called Brontosaurus's, and that Charon and Pluto are considered a 'double planet' and orbit each other. So cool. Finishing this, I feel even more passionately about Pluto being welcomed back into our solar system. This is such a wholesome read, and the art style is really cute, so overall I had a brilliant reading experience with this. I would love a hardcover copy of this, eventually, for my 'Space' shelf.

    A comic book that follows Pluto through a science museum as he tries to find out why he is no longer a planet, and ultimately answer the question "why do scientists change things?" The graphic illustrations are simple and the dialogue explains complicated concepts effectively. My outer space obsessed 4 year old loved looking at this book but I definitely see it useful as he gets older as well. Thank you Netgalley and Seagrass Press for an advanced copy of this book in exchange for a review.

The book has really great comic book style illustrations. At the back of the book there is an Authors note as well as the reason Pluto is no longer our 9th planet. As well as answers to some some of the questions brought p by the other exhibits in the book like dinosaurs and germs. There is also a glossary, further reading and websites to go along with the science brought up in the book. I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

    This is a cute and informative little book. I work with kids who often think Pluto "no longer exists". I hope this book can help kids understand the situation.

    Pluto is upset that he is no longer a planet. He has questions, and he sets out to explore the science museum in an attempt to get answers. Along the way, he encounters planets, dinosaur bones, germs, and more, and as he learns more about what scientists study, he also finds that no longer being a planet doesn't mean he's not still being studied. This book was a lot of fun. My five-year-old twins really love learning about space, and they are fascinated with the fact that Pluto used to be a plane Pluto is upset that he is no longer a planet.

My five-year-old twins really love learning about space, and they are fascinated with the fact that Pluto used to be a planet but was reclassified, so they were very excited to have me read this book with them. They like science in general, so it was neat to have other scientific topics introduced as well. The comic book style was fun, and we really enjoyed reading it together.

    I received a free copy of this book on Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. 'The universe is full of mysteries.'

Jacqueline Jules' Pluto is Peeved is a great informative picture book that provides factual information, whilst in a comic format. The reader goes on a journey with Pluto, who questions why scientists think that it's ok to change things, whilst going on a scientific journey through a museum, speaking to the museum inhabitants, such as a dinosaur, a germ, and learns what exactly scientists are interested in. Pluto soon learns that scientists are interested in everything, whether they are big or small and that includes him and the moon Charon. By putting scientific and astronomical information in the form of a picture book, it allows the reader to learn new information, without feeling that they are being bombarded by facts. The last few pages of the book, provide more information about the facts that are mentioned in the story, such as Pluto's status change to a dwarf planet, how earth was once considered the centre of the universe, the fate of the dinosaurs and a glossary of terms that younger readers may want to know the meaning of.

    This is an excellent introduction to planets for young children. The illustration are colorful and the explanations are impressively easy for a such complicate subject. Even, the book mention the International astronomy union and the scientific characteristic that define planet. Excellent work!

    Pluto Is Peeved: An Ex-Planet Searches For Answers is a children's picture book in comic form written by Jacqueline Jules and illustrated by Dave Roman, which focus on tiny ex-planet Pluto looking for answers as to why he was demoted to dwarf-planet status as he wonders throughout the museum. Full Disclosure: I love Pluto and was disheartened when it was reclassified as a dwarf planet – I didn't go out a protest like my fellow Pluto lovers, but I was there in spirit. Nowadays, I am at peace with Pluto Is Peeved: An Ex-Planet Searches For Answers is a children's picture book in comic form written by Jacqueline Jules and illustrated by Dave Roman, which focus on tiny ex-planet Pluto looking for answers as to why he was demoted to dwarf-planet status as he wonders throughout the museum. Full Disclosure: I love Pluto and was disheartened when it was reclassified as a dwarf planet – I didn't go out a protest like my fellow Pluto lovers, but I was there in spirit. Nowadays, I am at peace with Pluto's status and grown to love dwarf planets as much as planets, because of Pluto. However, I still think that the solar system has nine planets – not because I object the reclassification, it's just I grew up and learned that the solar system have nine planets and when I read or hear that the solar system has eight planets sounds wrong to my ears – at first. Regardless, on with the review! Jules' text is rather simplistic and straightforward. It has Pluto exploring a museum pondering why he was demoted from planetary status. It is reminiscent Night at the Museum, but more scientific. I appreciate that at the end of the book where it further explains the exhibits that Pluto visited in more scientific explanation. Roman's illustrations are simply wonderful and depict and enhanced the text rather well. The premise of the book is rather straightforward. It's about Pluto, who is peeved about being reclassified as he ponders around the museum looking for answers. He engages with several exhibitions and learns that scientists are always changing their minds, because the more they know, the more things change and it's for a good thing. Pluto also learned that just because scientist reclassified or demoted him, doesn’t mean they didn't care about him anymore – they still love him and want to study him, which made him happy in the end. All in all, Pluto Is Peeved: An Ex-Planet Searches For Answers is wonderful children's book of exploration, answers, and the scientific method and done in a wonderful medium – the comic book.

    Pluto is Peeved is a delightful look at learning to accept oneself just as they are, and about why humans study the things they do. Pluto has been kicked out of the planet pantheon. Despite Charon trying to cheer Pluto up, the little planet(oid) is inconsolable, and sets off through the museum, trying to learn why he was no longer 'special’. Visiting with a deceased dino, a bevy of bacteria, and a recumbent rock teaches Pluto that everyone is important, and scientists love studying everything!

Visiting with a deceased dino, a bevy of bacteria, and a recumbent rock teaches Pluto that everyone is important, and scientists love studying everything! Laid out in more of a comic book format, this quirky book is sure to appeal to any junior astronomers out there, and would be a great addition to any classroom library. Not only do kids, no matter the age, get a fun science lesson, but they learn that people can be special as is, without having fancy designations. At the end is a section detailing more scientific information on each exhibit Pluto visited. ***Many thanks to Netgalley, and Quarto Publishing for providing an egalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    An educational yet entertaining book, in graphic novel/comic book style. This graphic novel follows Pluto on his adventure to find out why he's been demoted from being a planet to not being a planet. Pluto assumes its all about his size, but he soon finds out he's wrong. I found this book to a perfect intro to the graphic novel style of reading for children.

    Graphic novels are all the rage, and I thought it was a clever twist to write a nonfiction story in this format. The content will appeal to both adults and younger learners.

    This book was pure awesome! It’s a graphic novel about Pluto. He is all sad and feels unimportant after no longer being a planet. But with some understanding and some lessons at the museum he learns that he too is important and has a place in the universe. I really like how this book was done. It’s short enough to read as a bedtime story, but in a graphic novel format with tons of cute illustrations. A perfect read.

Along the way he discovers that in science people have to changes ideas when new evidence arrives (think Galilei), and makes some friends. As a scientist I totally agree, as a person I feel for Pluto. Luckily its demotion doesn’t mean it will no longer be studied.

    This is a nice enough little book for children with an interest in science and more specifically space and the solar system. The illustrations are bright and colourful enough to draw young readers in and I can see this appealing to a specific audience who might be interested in the topic.

My main concern with this title is that it veers from bright and simplistic enough for the youngest of readers to being too difficult at random points. It would be hard to say with real certainty what age range this being pitched at. I could envisage this being something you could read with a child from age 3+ but it would require explanation alongside it, while it might seem to babyish to readers over the age of around 7. This makes it a tricky book to use in a class setting. Maybe one to read at home if you have children interested in this topic.

    Pluto was a little too whiney and the rest of the planets were a little too mean for me. The information was too few and far between, too. There was a lot of opportunity here, and unfortunately, I didn’t like it so I didn’t finish it. Kids will probably find it humorous though!
