Bad language, engaging stories

These books are engaging but the language is awful in my opinion. There are some sexist themes and calling characters names which we do not promote in my house. My 5 year old would be happy to read these books all the time but I do not feel comfortable with the bad language.

One thing I’m confused about

This is a really good series! My son got into it. Ok, it’s mostly fighting but it’s hilarious! But one of the books is called the voodoo vultures from Venus. I’m not gonna let my son read that book.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This series is for any reader who loves irreverent, action-packed stories, and who isn't bothered by violence or lack of sensitivity on the page. The Ricky Ricotta's Mighty Robot series is a rough-and-tumble, hilarious, engaging adventure with immersive illustrations to match. The plot of each story is very "good vs. evil" and the language is simple, with a lot of repetition and rhyming and humor that will appeal to kids.

There isn't much text on any page, so there's no room for emotions here, but the words are silly and engaging, which keeps readers reading.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
