Having a big best friend isn't always big fun...

Ricky Ricotta loves his Mighty Robot. They do everything together, but it's sometimes hard for a small mouse to have such a big buddy! If only the Mighty Robot could find someone his own size to play with, Ricky might finally have some fun by himself.

Little does Ricky know, his wish is about to come true. Evil Uncle Unicorn has a top-secret plan to trap the Mighty Robot so that he can take over Earth, and he's got a giant surprise in store. Once again, it's up to Ricky to save the planet -- and his best friend!

About the Author

When Dav Pilkey was a kid, he was diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia. Dav was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hallway every day. Luckily, Dav loved to draw and make up stories. He spent his time in the hallway creating his own original comic books—the very first adventures of Dog Man and Captain Underpants. In college, Dav met a teacher who encouraged him to illustrate and write. He won a national competition in 1986 and the prize was the publication of his first book, World War Won. He made many other books before being awarded the 1998 California Young Reader Medal for Dog Breath, which was published in 1994, and in 1997 he won the Caldecott Honor for The Paperboy. The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby, published in 2002, was the first complete graphic novel spin-off from the Captain Underpants series and appeared at #6 on the USA Today bestseller list for all books, both adult and children’s, and was also a New York Times bestseller. It was followed by The Adventures of Ook and Gluk: Kung Fu Cavemen from the Future and Super Diaper Baby 2: The Invasion of the Potty Snatchers, both USA Today bestsellers. The unconventional style of these graphic novels is intended to encourage uninhibited creativity in kids. His stories are semi-autobiographical and explore universal themes that celebrate friendship, tolerance, and the triumph of the good-hearted. Dav loves to kayak in the Pacific Northwest with his wife.



Dan Santat wrote and illustrated the graphic novel Sidekicks, and has also illustrated many acclaimed picture books, including The Guild of Geniuses and The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend, which won the Caldecott Medal. He lives in Alhambra, California, with his family. Visit his website at www.dantat.com.

From RICKY RICOTTA'S MIGHTY ROBOT VS. THE STUPID STINKBUGS FROM SATURN #6

Ricky and his Mighty Robot flew into the backyard.
There was Lucy, having a tea party with her pets.
"Wow!" cried Ricky. "Look how big your Jurassic Jackrabbits got!"
"They like to eat," said Lucy. "So I named them Fudgie, Cupcake, and Waffles."
Ricky rolled his eyes.
"Let's play princess!" Lucy said.
"No way!" said Ricky.
"Oh, come on," Lucy begged. "I'll be the beautiful princess, and you can be the ugly prince. Fudgie, Cupcake, and Waffles will be our royal ponies, and your Robot can be the big, brave knight."
"What part of 'no way' don't you understand?" asked Ricky.
"Now boys," said Ricky's father, "I want you to play nicely with Lucy."
"Rats!" said Ricky. "This is turning out to be a very bad day."
But what Ricky didn't know was that things were about to get much, much worse, much worse.
