Too Small To Be A Planet

Deutsch, Nederlands

Ali’s grandfather has died and he is struggling with grief. When the President of the United States unexpectedly visits Ali’s school, it should be the greatest day ever – but all Ali wants to do is hide. Unfortunately, he hides in the only toilet that the President’s security team deem safe for “Eagle” to use. Meanwhile, in space, Pluto, a small icy rock, is thrilled to be proclaimed part of the solar system – then devastated when the honour is taken away again.
