Grade 1-3–In this installment in the early chapter-book adventure series, Ricky and his robot battle villains from Uranus. When the little mouse finds himself weary of the problems associated with having an awkwardly huge robot friend, he wishes that the Mighty Robot would find a pal his own size. Ricky's wish comes true when the evil Uncle Unicorn creates a giant Ladybot to steal the Mighty Robot's affections. It's all part of Uncle Unicorn's plan to take over the Earth. Ricky enlists the help of his cousin Lucy and her Jurassic Jackrabbit pets to break the Ladybot's hold on his robot and to save the planet. The author delivers another plot-driven, action-packed tale complete with rock 'em-sock 'em battle scenes illustrated in gimmicky Flip-O-Rama. Ontiveros's black-and-white cartoons add to the fun and provide additional character details. The text is easy to read, with manageable sentences and short chapters. The package is designed to attract reluctant readers, especially boys, and it will do just that. The book even includes a mini art lesson so fans can draw their favorite characters from the story.–Carol L. MacKay, Camrose Public Library, Alberta, Canada
