Mouse Ricky Ricotta is visiting his cousin Lucy when Sergeant Stinkbug and his army arrive from Saturn with a plan to take over Earth. These stinkers kidnap Lucy, but, as usual, Ricky's robot comes to the rescue. Illustrated with black-and-white comic-book-style images, the slight story is so similar to others in the series (this is the sixth offering) that even fans may find it boring.

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-In their sixth adventure, young mouse Ricky and his robot friend battle Sergeant Stinkbug and his foul-smelling hordes. The iniquitous insects need a new realm to pollute, so they launch their garbage-can spaceship, planning to kidnap the king of Earth and take over the planet. Unfortunately, they snatch Ricky's cousin Lucy instead. Ricky and the Mighty Robot ride to the rescue, accompanied by Lucy's unusual pet jackrabbits, which were introduced in Ricky Ricotta's Mighty Robot vs. the Jurassic Jackrabbits from Jupiter (Scholastic, 2002). When Sergeant Stinkbug's Grow-Big Gumballs put the robot out of commission, it is up to the children to dump the trash troops and save the world once again. The short, easy-reading text is highlighted by Pilkey's off-the-wall, deadpan humor. The black-and-white cartoons and the Flip-O-Rama pages add to the comic-book effect. This is a lighthearted transitional chapter book that will have strong appeal to reluctant readers.-Elaine E. Knight Lincoln Elementary Schools, IL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

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.
