This is the extraordinary and unique story of the 11year old Venetia Burney Phair, who gave the planet Pluto its name in 1930. 77years later and Pluto now demoted, Venetia is shown the planet she named for the first time, through a telescope, on the eve of her 89th birthday.

"This is a masterpiece. I'm biased of course but I marvel at the very skilful blending of erudite information & human interest." Venetia Phair
