This is the story of Ricky Ricotta, a lonely little mouse who befriends a mysterious giant robot. The robot helps Ricky with his homework, stands up to the school bullies, and even saves the world by battling the evil Doctor Stinky McNasty! Using an amazing graphic novel format, even the most reluctant reader will find himself whizzing through the chapters.
Some of you might already be familiar with Mr. Pilkey’s work from his epic series, Captain Underpants. The Ricky Ricotta series features his same brand of unique humor, although slightly turned down for younger readers. First- and second-grade boys would probably love the juxtaposition of a tiny mouse teamed with a giant robot….at least, I sure did!
