Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the sixth book in Dav Pilkey's adventure series aimed at younger readers, Ricky Ricotta's Mighty Robot vs. the Stupid Stinkbugs from Saturn by Dav Pilkey, illus. by Martin Ontiveros, a smelly space monster kidnaps Ricky's cousin Lucy. When Sergeant Stinkbug captures Ricky's Mighty Robot too, it's Ricky's turn to save the day. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Ricky Ricotta and his mighty robot have to go to Cousin Lucy's. Ricky is a young mouse living in a mouse's world. Mighty Robot is a tall robot and Lucy is also a mouse. This is important information because when Ricky and the robot are coerced into playing princess with Lucy, they become knights. Instantly their game is invaded by Stinkbugs from Saturn and the knights fight them off. The invaders are big. The invaders are mean. The invaders are not seen by adults. Saving Lucy and the rest of the world is up to Ricky and the robot. Fortunately, Lucy turns out to be far more resourceful than Ricky thought, and the two become a team in their galactic quest. With many comic-like illustrations breaking up the text, this early reader should appeal to young superhero fans. I found the story wonderfully impossible, and enjoyed the character's ingenuity. However, I did wish for less fighting. Curiously, the normal text stops at page 87. On page 88, Pilkey suggests using the following pages for a flip-o-rama that will show Ricky in motion. Then the regular text resumes on page 96. I have nothing against the flip-o-rama, or the drawing lesson given at the end of the book, but I did find it odd to break up the story. 2003, Blue Sky Press/Scholastic, Ages 4 to 8.

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-In their sixth adventure, young mouse Ricky and his robot friend battle Sergeant Stinkbug and his foul-smelling hordes. The iniquitous insects need a new realm to pollute, so they launch their garbage-can spaceship, planning to kidnap the king of Earth and take over the planet. Unfortunately, they snatch Ricky's cousin Lucy instead. Ricky and the Mighty Robot ride to the rescue, accompanied by Lucy's unusual pet jackrabbits, which were introduced in Ricky Ricotta's Mighty Robot vs. the Jurassic Jackrabbits from Jupiter (Scholastic, 2002). When Sergeant Stinkbug's Grow-Big Gumballs put the robot out of commission, it is up to the children to dump the trash troops and save the world once again. The short, easy-reading text is highlighted by Pilkey's off-the-wall, deadpan humor. The black-and-white cartoons and the Flip-O-Rama pages add to the comic-book effect. This is a lighthearted transitional chapter book that will have strong appeal to reluctant readers.-Elaine E. Knight Lincoln Elementary Schools, IL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Hooked!--he actually took a 2nd look at this after the 1st time through!

    My husband and I love to read but my son does not. At least, he didn't until this series came out. He whipped through all of the Ricky Ricotta series books without complaint. (Well, he did complain when he found out that the next book in the series wasn't due out for a few more months!) For me, the real clincher was when he picked up the books to look at them a a second or third time. I'd NEVER seen him do that before! The books are very similar to each other in plot but he didn't seem to mind. Bottom line, if you're a mother who doesn't enjoy handing your children books about underpants or excrement, you might try this series instead.
