Description

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 r's 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 it's often
brains not brawn that save the day.
