Dav Pilkey's RICKY RICOTTA reading levels

Ricky Ricotta is another illustrated and boy-friendly series from Dav Pilkey, of Captain Underpants fame. The principle character Ricky begins the stories as a lonely little mouse who is bullied constantly at school. Fortunately for him though, an evil scientist has made a gigantic robot who he intends to have destroy Squeakville. When the robot refuses, Ricky protects him from the scientist, Stinky McNasty, and a beautiful friendship ensues. Lots of flip-o-ramas. Lots of fun.

Spanish versions available for three books. (Volumes 1, 3, and 4. Gotta think #2 is out there somewhere.)
