Wodney Wat's Wobotby Helen Lester
Synopses & Reviews
When Wodney must face off against that big bully Camilla Capybara for a second time, a talking robot becomes his secret weapon. The meek wodent . . . er, rodent . . . hero with a speech impediment and a heart of gold is back! So is Camilla Capybara—the BIG bully who makes poor Wodney and his classmates tremble. But this time, Wodney has a secret weapon: a robot that helps him pronounce his rs and seems to be just the thing to scare Camilla away for good.
With the second empowering tale about Wodney, Lester and Munsinger use their
signature dose of humor to remind us that the little guy can finish first, and its often
brains—not brawn—that save the day.
"Still having trouble with the letter R, Wodney Wat receives a talking 'wobot' for his birthday, which repeats everything he says and — best of all — has no trouble pronouncing 'R's.' Things are great until the return of infamous bully Camilla Capybara ('Everyone thought Camilla had gone west. Forever'), who resumes tormenting her classmates. But Camilla is nothing if not shrewd: when Wodney's wobot stops working, she swaps her frilly, pink dress for doctor's scrubs and confidently replaces its battery (before being chased away once again). Readers should have fun reading aloud in Wodney's voice, but multidimensional Camilla is a scene-stealer herself. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
This resealable package comes with a paperback and a two-sided cassette tape. The professionally narrated audio production includes lively sound eVects and original music. Side one includes page-turn signals; side two features an uninterrupted reading.
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. Read 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.
