Most Helpful Customer Reviews
My daughter first read this book for her class. The "Flip-O-Rama" pages are a big hit. I admit, I like that little feature too. The story it's self is fun and just long enough to hold a childs interest. We also like the "how to draw" section in the back of the book.
If you like fiction books then this is a great book for you. Ricky Ricottas Mighty Robot vs. the Jurassic Jackrabbits is mostly about a mouse and his giant robot that fight evil villains from other planets. Ricky is a kid who has a tough robot. General Jackrabbit is mean and evil. The setting takes place in a small town. This is like the book Captain Underpants because they both fight evil villains. This is a great book for kids of any age because the book has comedy and action.
