Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it ! I bought this book for my son who loves to read. The illustrations are awesome & Dav Pikey has written book kids will love to read. My son had a hard time putting it down. Boys and their super heroes & robots is a great combination. The storyline keeps kids coming back for more & the comic in the book makes reading so much fun. The Mighty Robot books are a great collection of stories for young leveled readers who aren't ready for chapter books yet. Just loved these books.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An improved follow up to the Mosquitoes of Mercury I really like this book, the characters are much more developed, the villains are much more fearsome (I really liked their plan to take over the world but was glad it was foiled). I also like how the robot and Ricky are able to avoid getting ensnared in the vultures plan and defeat the robot. My favourite of the Ricky Ricotta books.

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
