Synopsis

The creator of Goodnight Goon and The Runaway Mummy pulls from his mad-scientist brain a kid so attracted to slime, muck, dirt, and yuck he could only be called Icky Ricky.

Uh-oh! Icky Ricky is in trouble and has a lot of explaining to do. Why? Well, you see . . .

Someone spotted Bigfoot in Icky Ricky's neighborhood!
Icky Ricky and his friends had a teary funeral . . . for a pepperoni pizza.
A crazy one-eyed squirrel stole his Palooka Pops.
Icky Ricky's trashbag hazmat suit might not be enough to protect him from mutants while he's cleaning up trash around town. Is it the end of the world for Icky Ricky?

Icky Ricky is up to his eyebrows in mayhem--and in ick!

"Hits the gross-out sweet spot."--Kirkus
"I thoroughly enjoyed these books, and I look forward to more icky adventures from young Ricky."--Nick Bruel, author of Bad Kitty

Excerpt

What makes Icky Ricky so icky? Well, there was this time, for example . . .

Chapter #1
THE EGYPTIAN PIZZA FUNERAL
Part #1
Featuring
THE ONE-EYED SQUIRREL,
THE EXPLODING JUICE BOX,
and THE FEARSOME MAN-DOG!

     We grabbed the pizza and ran out of the house. It was a bit dark and cloudy, but it wasn't raining. We started running down the street, but Gus said he didn't like passing the house with the freaky man-dog. It's a dog that lost some fur around his eyes, so around his eyes it's kind of skin-colored, and it looks like a man wearing a dog mask. So we turned around and went the other way. But Stew said he doesn't like going that way because of the one-eyed squirrel. There really is a one eyed squirrel that lives in a tree or something, and it's the meanest squirrel ever. Once I saw it snatch a cookie right out of a kid's hand!
   We ended up taking a small path that leads between the houses. We followed the little stream back there, and finally came out on the next block. We had about six blocks to go when we saw some lightning, and then boom! There was this huge thunder explosion! Then it started raining like crazy. I held the pizza box over my head so I could stay dry. We ran to find someplace to get out of the rain.
   Then Gus screamed "One-eyed squirrel!" and he pointed to something in the trees.
   And I was like, "He wants the pizza!"
   Stew said, "Run!"
