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.

brains not brawn that save the day.
