*This post is sponsored by Scholastic. I received complimentary books to facilitate my post. All opinions are my own.

It’s no secret that I’m a HUGE fan of children’s literature. I am always seeking out new reading material for my children. I was thrilled when I was given the chance to check out the Ricky Ricotta series from famed author Dav Pilkey. As soon as the books arrived, I knew my son was going to love them. Henry read most of the first book aloud to me – and both of us just fell in love with little Ricky. You will too!

From Dav Pilkey, creator of Captain Underpants, and acclaimed artist Dan Santat, an out-of-this-world friendship adventure with brand-new full-color illustrations and mini-comics throughout!

Ricky Ricotta is a little mouse with BIG problems! Every day he is picked on by the neighborhood bullies. He lives in Squeakyville with his mother and father, and being an only mouse, he is often lonely. That is until SOMETHING BIG HAPPENS! A giant flying robot enters Ricky’s life and an unlikely friendship is born! Together, Ricky and his Robot must save the planet from a galaxy bursting with bad guys!

ABOUT BOOK ONE: RICKY RICOTTA’S MIGHTY ROBOTricky1

Little Ricky Ricotta has a problem: the bullies at school pick on him all the time. Until one day, he saves the life of a mighty robot. Together, Ricky and his Robot face the bullies, and save Squeakyville from a giant evil lizard monster. That’s what friends are for!

Mr. Mosquito hates Mercury. The days are so hot, they melt his flip-flops, and the nights are so cold, his toothpaste freezes solid! He’s decided to take over Earth instead. Ricky and his Robot must stop his army of massive Mutant Mosquitoes!

ABOUT BOOK THREE: RICKY RICOTTA’S MIGHTY ROBOT VS VOODOO VULTURES FROM VENUSricky4

Victor Von Vulture hates Venus. His toasted cheese sandwiches are always way too gooey, and ice cream melts in a second! So he and his army of Voodoo Vultures try to cast a spell on the Earth. It’s up to Ricky and his Robot to stop them!

Little Ricky Ricotta has a problem: the bullies at school pick on him all the time. Until one day, he saves the life of a mighty robot. Together, Ricky and his Robot face the bullies, and save Squeakyville from a giant evil lizard monster. That’s what friends are for!

 

My son Henry (a first grader), FLEW through the first book – as he could not put it down! The shorter chapters coupled with the full page illustrations make these ideal for kids transitioning from picture books to chapter books. While my son is a strong reader, the Ricky Ricotta series really ramped up his confidence and re-ignited his love for reading. As he heads into a brand new school year, he KNOWS he is a capable reader who is excited to select chapter books. Thank you Dav Pilkey and Ricky Ricotta!

I encourage you to check out this incredible series for your children.
