Ricky Ricotta may be a small mouse, but he has a VERY big friend - a giant flying Robot! And when an evil, outer-space villain named Mr. Mosquito invades Earth with an army of Mutant Mosquitoes from Mercury, Ricky and his Robot know exactly what to do! Young readers will cheer as Ricky's Robot battles the bad guys. And when Ricky finds a very smart way to play a trick on Mr. Mosquito, it's plain to see that even a little mouse can be a BIG hero!

Praise for the Ricky Ricotta's Mighty Robot series:
"An adventure story with great appeal . . . With barely more text than a long easy-reader, this title will be a heaven-sent choice for kids with reading difficulties." -School Library Journal
"It's easy to see how Pilkey's high-action, easy-reading chapter novel with a comic book feel would appeal to younger readers . . . Silly good fun." -Kirkus
"Newly independent readers and Pilkey fans alike will not be disappointed by this humorous ride." -School Library Journal
"Aimed at a younger audience than the wildly popular Captain Underpants books, this series opener has all the classic Pilkey hallmarks..." -Booklist
