Ricky Ricotta is lucky to have his Mighty Robot as a best friend. They play, study, and even get in trouble together, and they always watch out for each other. That's what friends are for! In this book, Ricky and his Mighty Robot meet a mean little Martian named Major Monkey who plans to take over Earth with his monstrous Mecha-Monkeys. When Major Monkey plays a trick on Ricky's Robot, it's up to Ricky to rescue his friend and stop Major Monkey from menacing mousekind!
Originally published in 2000, this edition features brand-new full-colour illustrations throughout!

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
