Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Major Monkey Attacks The 4th book in the series and a familiar formula has been established. Some fun goes down at home with Ricky and his Robot. This time Robot uses the family mini van for a skateboard and you can imagine the results. I laughed at this. Then it's back to an evil villain on the next planet,this time Mars. Some humorous, yet factual information about Mars is related to us and we meet Major Monkey who, of course, hates living on Mars and decides to take control of Earth. But Major Monkey is no dumb-dumb, he's been watching earth via satellite and watched the previous villains fail at their attempts and knows he has to neutralize Ricky's Robot first before invading Earth. Typical of the other books. I had a few giggles. This is aimed at much younger audience than Captain Underpants and with a lower vocabulary it just doesn't come across as funny either. But it is silly fun, and lovable cute. As a reward to regular readers, the past villains are shown twice in this book,without mention of who they are. See if you can remember and name them all! Drawing instructions as usual at the end of book. A fun, silly, "first chapter book".

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
