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!

Ricky Ricotta and his Mighty Robot are best buddies -- but with big friends come big responsibilities...Ricky and his Mighty Robot are late for dinner again, and Ricky's parents are not too happy. They think Ricky and his Robot need to learn a lesson, so that night they send the boys to bed without TV.Luckily for Ricky and his Robot, their punishment saves them from falling under the spell of Victor Von Vulture, a villain from the planet Venus. Victor has invaded Earth with his Video Vultures, with plans to steal all the food in Squeakyville. Now only Ricky and his Robot can send the bad guys soaring back into space!

When Dav Pilkey was a kid, he was diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia. Dav was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hallway every day. Luckily, Dav loved to draw and make up stories. He spent his time in the hallway creating his own original comic books -- the very first adventures of Dog Man and Captain Underpants.

In college, Dav met a teacher who encouraged him to write and illustrate for kids. He took her advice and created his first book, World War Won, which won a national competition in 1986. Dav made many other books before being awarded the California Young Reader Medal for Dog Breath (1994) and the Caldecott Honor for The Paperboy (1996).

In 2002, Dav published his first full-length graphic novel for kids, called The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby. It was both a USA Today and New York Times bestseller. Since then, he has published more than a dozen full-length graphic novels for kids, including the bestselling Dog Man and Cat Kid Comic Club series.

Dav's stories are semi-autobiographical and explore universal themes that celebrate friendship, empathy, and the triumph of the good-hearted.

When he is not making books for kids, Dav loves to kayak with his wife in the Pacific Northwest.
