Where Literary Legends Are Born

A PLACE FOR PLUTO selected for Barnes & Noble’s National Storytime!

Stef Wade’s debut picture book A PLACE FOR PLUTO has been selected for Barnes & Noble’s National Storytime on August 11th. It will be read in Barnes & Noble stores nationwide! Stay tuned for exact timing at your local Barnes & Noble closer to the date.

Pluto got the shock of his life when he was kicked out of the famous nine.

His planet status was stripped away, leaving him lost and confused. Poor Pluto! On his quest to find a place where he belongs, he talks to comets, asteroids, and meteoroids. He doesn’t fit it anywhere! But when Pluto is about to give up, he runs into a dwarf planet and finally finds his place in the solar system. This feel-good picture book combines a popular science topic with character education themes of self discovery, acceptance, and friendship.

“Make space for this clever blend of science and self-realization.”–Kirkus Reviews
