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 that he could only be called Icky Ricky. Uh-oh! Icky Ricky is in a mess and has a lot of explaining to do. Why? Well, you see . . . A water demon took over the sink in the boys' bathroom! Icky Ricky and his friends cleaned up the house—with a leaf blower. His sweaty armpit is a perfect robber-proof bank. The dead raccoon he bought at a garage sale is speeding downhill in a runaway go-cart. Can Icky Ricky stop it? Icky Ricky is up to his eyeballs in trouble—and in ick!
About Michael Rex
MICHAEL REX is the creator of over thirty books for children, including the number one bestseller Goodnight Goon and the Fangbone! series. He was inspired to create Icky Ricky by his two boys, Declan and Gavin, who are fine young citizens, but very disgusting. Gavin eats ketchup on cake, and Declan uses a marker to color his belly button. Along with the boys, Mr. Rex lives with his wife and their dog, Roxy, in Leonia, New Jersey. Both his wife and the dog are not disgusting at all. Visit him at www.michaelrex.blogspot.com. You won’t get dirty.
