Clyde Tombaugh and the Search for Planet Xby Margaret K. Wetterer, Laurie A. Caple (Illustrator)
Gazing at the Moon through a telescope for the first time, twelve-year-old Clyde Tombaugh wondered what other mysteries were out in space. The author of two other Carolrhoda On My Own Books (The Snow Walker, C. 1996, and Kate Shelley and the Midnight Express, C. 1990) here tells the fascinating true story of the hardworking young man who discovered Pluto, the ninth planet in our solar system. Laurie Caple's richly colored illustrations capture Clyde's determination and bring his story to life.
