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.

This book is a lot of fun and just as good as the others in the series.
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
