About This Book
Ricky Ricotta is a lonely mouse. He has no brothers and no sisters to play with. Often he finds himself being picked on by bullies at school. He is waiting for his life to change for the better — for something big to happen.
Meanwhile, Dr. Stinky McNasty, a bad rat scientist, is up to no good. He wants to take over the entire city of Squeakyville. He has built a monstrously-sized robot and now orders it to destroy the city! But to Dr. Stinky's surprise, the giant, gentle robot refuses, and with Ricky Ricotta's help, the robot gets away!
Soon, nobody can pick on Ricky Ricotta anymore. He and his robot get to teach those bullies a lesson. But Dr. Stinky wants revenge on the robot, and creates a giant lizard to destroy it. A battle ensues, and in tried-and-true Flip-O-Rama fashion fun, the good guys come out on top. Dr. Stinky is foiled for good!
