Ricky Ricotta's Mighty Robot vs. the Video Vultures from Venus (Ricky Ricotta's Mighty Robot #3) (Paperback)
Ricky Ricotta and his Mighty Robot are best buddies -- but with big friends come big responsibilities...
Ricky and his Mighty Robot are late for dinner again, and Ricky's parents are not too happy. They think Ricky and his Robot need to learn a lesson, so that night they send the boys to bed without TV.
Luckily for Ricky and his Robot, their punishment saves them from falling under the spell of Victor Von Vulture, a villain from the planet Venus. Victor has invaded Earth with his Video Vultures, with plans to steal all the food in Squeakyville. Now only Ricky and his Robot can send the bad guys soaring back into space!
About the Author
"This reboot... offer[s] a new generation of readers a fun introduction to chapter books... Newly independent readers and Pilkey fans alike will not be disappointed by the humorous ride." -- School Library Journal
"Aimed at a younger audience than the wildly popular Captain Underpants books, this series... has all the classic Pilkey hallmarks: comic book panels, superhero action, and flip-o-rama." -- Booklist
This debut sparkle's with well written characters, family dynamics gone awry and a deeply embedded Kansas location that is normally not written about. The only -too-real mother/daughter relationship is fraught with misunderstandings and hard won truths. How Mandelbaum handles a bone weary, obsessed and depressed woman on the verge of losing everything -- her home, her daughter, her animals and the entire sanctuary - is writing at its best. Surely, a writer to watch! - reveiw by Maureen
