Letter to Pluto (Penpals on Pluto)
Letters to Pluto is a comical, memorable book that describes a story of interplanetary pen pals. A young boy gets assigned to a pen pal on Pluto. He originally dislikes letter writing, but he learns to love it and his pen pal at the end of the book. The pair bond over silly grammies and dislike of smelly zomblefruit. They learn that every species is important when the Plutonian government almost extinguishes the zomblefruit, destroying the environment, but save the environment with an extra zomblefruit seed. This book is good for all ages but exceptionally nice to read when you have a silly grammy yourself. It is very funny because there are lots of silly words, such as “zomblefruit.” It has lots of cute details and side-plots, so it looks and feels complete. The world it discusses seems good, but not utopia-like, so it seems more realistic. If you are feeling sad, sick, or frustrated with writing (as all kids get sometimes), it is a good read. Even an adult (particularly a grammy) can enjoy it, so it is good to read out loud.
