Ricky Ricotta and his Mighty Robot are ready for the best day ever!

And they have a surprise for Ricky: His cousin, Lucy, is coming with them! Ricky thinks Lucy is a real pest. Suddenly, things aren't looking so sunny anymore.
At the museum, there is another surprise in store. General Jackrabbit, an evil genius from the planet Jupiter, is jumping for joy!

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 book stands as such an enormous icon in graphic novels. It’s so iconic in its wit and dry humor and really grabs hold of your heart as soon as you open it! Nimona follows a young shapeshifter of the same name, who is chaotic and full of whim and working hard to become an iconic villain. She enlists as a sidekick to Lord Blackheart, and the two are ready to wreak havoc! But the involvement of a hero, Sir Goldenloin, brings their battle to epic proportions while also bringing out unexpected adventures: good-deeds, kindness, and even love! Noelle Stevenson’s illustration style is so fantastic and perfectly matches the wit with which she crafts the story. This is a re-readable delight!
