Having a Mighty Robot as a best friend is great, but it's even greater when he can help build a fort! After some pounding, some banging, and some laser eye-welding, Ricky and his Mighty Robot build the coolest fort ever! But when Ricky's cousin Lucy shows up, she renames the fort a "castle" and says it needs curtains - rats!
But these are the least of Ricky's worries . . . Nimrod Night Crawler has created a wormhole so he can send his army of evil Night Crawlers to help him take over the world, and Ricky's Robot is trapped in a deep pit! Without his Mighty Robot, it's up to Ricky - and an unlikely hero - to put a stop to this nightmare from Neptune!

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
