My kids are WILD about Ricky Ricotta’s Mighty Robot book series, by Dav Pilkey, creator of Captain Underpants. We love this series! The bold bright colorful pages and comics within the story appeal to kids. My 8 year old daughter thought these stories were fantastic but I was even more impressed that they captivated by 6 year old son who is a more reluctant reader. Each night he would demand we read more and more Ricky Ricotta’s Mighty Robot.
8 books are available in the series. We read the first 4 and Kyle is BEGGING me to buy the next 4. He honestly can’t get enough of Ricky Ricotta!

Each book has action scenes in comic style format with bold colors and flashy graphics. Even cooler, at the end of each story, the final epic scenes between the Mighty Robot and whatever villain he is battling are in Flip-o-rama format that makes the action look like it is moving when you flip the pages. Cool!
