I am fortunate that both of my daughters love to read. The only problem is that they go through books so quickly that we are constantly looking for more reading material to send to school for silent reading time. But, I think we have found a winning new series, Ricky Ricotta’s Mighty Robot by Dave Pilkey (author of the popular Captain Underpants). About the series:
Ricky Ricotta is a little mouse with BIG problems! Every day he is picked on by the neighborhood bullies. He lives in Squeakyville with his mother and father, and being an only mouse, he is often lonely. That is until SOMETHING BIG HAPPENS! A giant flying robot enters Ricky’s life and an unlikely friendship is born! Together, Ricky and his Robot must save the planet from a galaxy bursting with bad guys!
My daughter finished book 1 and loved it! From the minute you open the book, you know it’s going to be different because it is in FULL COLOR. With features like mini-comic strips and flip-o-grams, the illustrations really are part of the story and grab your attention. Get a better look and check out what we thought in the video below:
