Having a big best friend isn't always big fun...

Ricky Ricotta loves his Mighty Robot. They do everything together, but it's sometimes hard for a small mouse to have such a big buddy! If only the Mighty Robot could find someone his own size to play with, Ricky might finally have some fun by himself.

Little does Ricky know, his wish is about to come true. Evil Uncle Unicorn has a top-secret plan to trap the Mighty Robot so that he can take over Earth, and he's got a giant surprise in store. Once again, it's up to Ricky to save the planet -- and his best friend!

About the Author

As a child, Dav Pilkey was diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD. Dav was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hall every day. Luckily, Dav loved to draw and make up stories, so he spent his time in the hallway creating his own original comic books.

In the second grade, Dav Pilkey created a comic book about a superhero named Captain Underpants. His teacher ripped it up and told him he couldn’t spend the rest of his life making silly books. Fortunately, Dav was not a very good listener.

Dav has gone on to create award-winning and bestselling books for children. His Captain Underpants series has more than 80 million copies in print worldwide and has been translated into more than 28 languages. In 2017, DreamWorks Animation brought the character to the silver screen in the feature film adaptation Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, and Netflix is now streaming The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants TV show.

Dav’s latest creation, Dog Man, continues to be a #1 New York Times bestselling series with more than 13 million copies in print worldwide and translations available in more than 21 languages. Dav is also the creator of the Dragon series, the Dumb Bunnies series, Dog Breath, and The Paperboy, which is a Caldecott Honor Book.

Dav lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife.

Dan Santat wrote and illustrated the graphic novel Sidekicks, and has also illustrated many acclaimed picture books, including The Guild of Geniuses and The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend, which won the Caldecott Medal. He lives in Alhambra, California, with his family. Please visit his website at www.dantat.com.

Read an Excerpt

From Ricky Ricotta's Mighty Robot vs. the Uranium Unicorns from Uranus #7

Ricky and his Mighty Robot walked home. Ricky was not happy.

That night after supper, Ricky's Mighty Robot helped Ricky get ready for bed.

Usually Ricky enjoyed brushing his teeth with the Turbo-Toothbrush built into his Robot's pinky finger...

... but not tonight.

Usually Ricky laughed when his Robot helped him put on his pajamas...

... but not tonight.

And usually Ricky had fun when his Robot tucked him into bed...

... but not tonight.

Ricky loved his Mighty Robot, but sometimes it was hard having a best friend who was so BIG.

"I wish my Mighty Robot had somebody his own size to play with," Ricky thought. "Then maybe I could have fun by myself."

As Ricky went to sleep that evening, he did not suspect that his wish was about to come true.

I like it because it is fun and I like robots. On the first one, Ricky discovers he had a mighty robot. It is kinda violent and they fight.

This is a good example of science fiction because it has robots and aliens which are characters that could not exist in the world we know.Stars: Point of View
