Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not As Funny But Starting some Continuity Following the same established routine we get a view of Venus and the vulture inhabitants.  Now we learn some factual though humorous information about the planet and why Victor Von Vulture hates living there (no good food).  So he devises a plot to hypnotise the earth's inhabitants who will bring him all the food in the world.  Lucky for Ricky, he and his robot were grounded from TV that night when the waves were sent across Earth.  Ricky and his robot to the rescue!  The story is light-hearted but the humour is less a part of the story as it was in the first two and this third book has drifted more into the science-fiction superhero category.  The plot is multi-faceted, there is a life lesson for Ricky (and the robot) and good conquers evil.  A fun page for fans reading in order will be when Victor is sent to jail and we can see looking out the jail's other barred windows, Dr. Stinky from book #1 and Mr. Mosquito from book #2.  Recommended first chapter book series.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for the Ricky Ricotta's Mighty Robot series:"An adventure story with great appeal . . . With barely more text than a long easy-reader, this title will be a heaven-sent choice for kids with reading difficulties." -School Library Journal"It's easy to see how Pilkey's high-action, easy-reading chapter novel with a comic book feel would appeal to younger readers . . . Silly good fun." -Kirkus"Newly independent readers and Pilkey fans alike will not be disappointed by this humorous ride." -School Library Journal"Aimed at a younger audience than the wildly popular Captain Underpants books, this series opener has all the classic Pilkey hallmarks..." -Booklist
