The Simple English Wikipedia has an article on:
  1. A dwarf planet is a type of space object that is smaller than a regular planet. Dwarf planets are spherical (round), but they have smaller space objects nearby them (unlike a planet).
    Pluto is a dwarf planet because, although it is round, there is space junk floating around it.
