From Publishers' Weekly:

The Kid Who Named Pluto: And the Stories of Other Extraordinary Young People in Science by Marc McCutcheon, illus. by Jon Cannell offers true stories that focus on nine prodigies who changed the face of science, such as Philo Taylor Farnsworth in "The Teenager Who Invented Television" (he made the first design for a television when he was only 14, according to his bio) and Mary Anning whose discovery (in the early 1800s) of an ichthyosaur skeleton as a 12-year-old led her to a life as a paleontologist in "The Curious Girl Who Discovered Sea-Monster Skeletons."
