From Dav Pilkey, creator of Captain Underpants, and acclaimed artist Dan Santat, an out-of-this-world friendship adventure with all-new full-color illustrations! Hooray! Today is Ricky Ricotta's birthday, and it is going to be the BEST day ever! As a special treat, Ricky's family is going to the museum to see dinosaurs. But when they get there, an evil space-bunny named General Jackrabbit is creating Jurassic Jackrabbits that will help him take over Earth. Can Ricky and his Mighty Robot beat the big, bad bunnies? Or will this end up being the WORST birthday ever? Originally published in 2002, this edition features brand-new full-color illustrations and mini-comics throughout!
Praise for the RICKY RICOTTA'S MIGHTY ROBOT series (original editions, published 2000-2005) "An adventure story with great appeal . . . With barely more text than a long easy-reader, this title will be a heaven-sent choice for kids with reading difficulties." --SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL "It's easy to see how Pilkey's high-action, easy-reading chapter novel with a comic book feel would appeal to younger readers. . . . Silly good fun." --KIRKUS
