Sometimes you need a friend to protect you, whether you`re a tiny little mouse or a great big robot. Squeakyville`s diminutive population is under threat when the evil rat scientist Dr. Stinky McNasty sets his giant robot upon them to destroy them all. But in a twist, the robot refuses to commit his dastardly crime and instead becomes Ricky Ricotta`s best friend! Now it`s the robot that needs protection, from his furious creator. And since he`s helped out Ricky when it comes to bullies, birds and other foes, it`s time for the mouse to return the favour. Children adore Dav Pilkey`s stories, which come to life with Martin Ontiveros` cartoonish illustrations in Ricky Ricotta`s Giant Robot.
