Poor Rodney Rat can't pronounce his R's and the other rodents tease him mercilessly. But when Camilla Capybara joins Rodney's class and announces that she is bigger, meaner, and smarter than any of the other rodents, everyone is afraid. It seems she really is bigger, meaner, and smarter than all of the rest of them - until our unwitting hero, Wodney Wat, catches Camilla out in a game of Simon Says.

Follow along with Wodney as he surprises himself and his classmates by single-handedly saving the whole class from the big bad bully. Children will delight as shy Rodney Rat triumphs over all and his tiny voice decides the day - R's or no R's. Download and start listening now!

    " Great story for young ones regarding bullying. Excellent message. The language was little confusing for my 3 & 4 year old the first couple of times we read it, though. "

    " I remember having this book read to me when I was in fourth grade by the school librarian. Rereading it now I am able to see a lot more than I did back then. I still thought the storyline was engaging, but I also felt that it went very quickly. It did not really go into enough depth to be connected to the characters. You are first introduced to Rodney/Wodney and are given a short description of who he is, and then 5 pages and only a few paragraphs in, the "enemy" is introduced. I felt like there was not enough of a background given in the beginning to emotionally sympathize with the character because he saves the day so fast. "

    " I love Helen Lester! My students always love this story about shy "Wodney" who can't pronounce his "r's". Excellent book about overcoming challenges. "

    " I like this book because it highlights speech impediments and makes them special and unique to each person. This would be good in an older classroom as an introduction to bullying. "
