You'll "flip" for this story. Ricky Ricotta lives in Squeakyville. He wishes he had a friend to play with. He gets picked on a lot when he walks to school until the day he meets Dr. Stinky and his robot at recess. And that's when the fun begins! Robot and Ricky become friends and share many adventures together. They try to defeat Dr. Stinky and his new monster. Ricky and Robot discover what being good friends is all about. This book is so exciting you should read it to find out if Ricky and Robot win!

I liked this book because the author puts a lot of details in the story and illustrations. My favorite part is when Ricky put Dr. Stinky in jail. That made me laugh out loud. I like the way Dav Pilkey writes his stories. I am glad he wrote more stories about Ricky Riccotta. The author uses cartoons in his drawings. That was a great way to get readers to read this book.

If you like Super Diaper Baby and Captain Underpants, you will love this book. I recommend this book to anyone in 1st through 8th grade. Also, I recommend this book to lovers of thee "Captain Underpants" series. You will love this book!
