To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Great books for beginning readers. There are great pictures and not too much to read on each page which is why my son was interested in reading them. I would highly recommend for readers not too interested in reading longer novels yet as they are easy to read and engaging at the same time.
Great kids book, this was breathlessly received by my five and seven year old boys for bedtime story and gave us a few evenings of action packed fun, I’m pretty sure we have all these books and we’d buy more if they were available.
And I like them too. I learned about this series when visiting family and saw that my 6 yr old grandson had two (of the 9) books in the series. His mother liked them as they didn't have offensive words (like fart and poop and snot and other stuff that so many young people's books seem to have these days. It is male-centered in a world (it seems) of books geared to girls these days -- and the male-figure ones are outlandish in wording and bodily-function jokes. The main character is a boy mouse and the adventures are fun for young boys who want to be a hero of sorts in a simple life. The Mighty Robot is the hero but his owner is 'the little boy mouse'. Fun for adults to read out loud and many simple words so young readers can want to read them too. At first my grandson was disappointed that the 'new' books were a reprint edition of the ones he had but then he realized that the pages were thicker, the graphics cooler and now he wants new books of the two he already had (which he found a a used books store/thrift store). Even the older edition books he read at the library had torn pages (thin newsprint pages). So he agreed the new books would work out just fine. He was super surprised that his grandmother was able to find all the books he was missing (the other 7) and they arrived a few days into her trip - lots of time left to read them all.
My son LOVES all of the Ricky Ricotta Mighty Robot books. He pre-ordered this one with his allowance. As always, he can't put it down. He usually finishes the book on the first day, and this one was no different. Re-reading all week long. Love that there is a book sereies that holds his interest for so long!
