Hooway for this Wainbow Book!

"Poor Wodney. Wodney Wat. His real name was Rodney Rat, but he couldn't pronounce his r's. To make matters worse, he was a rodent. A wodent."

So begins Helen Lester and Lynn Munsinger's delightful story about a little rat with a speech impediment. Of course Wodney's classmates tease him so incessantly that he gnaws his cheesy lunch alone and hides his head in his jacket during recess. Then one day, big, mean, smart Camilla Capybara shows up and torments all the rodents in the class. But guess who saves the day not in spite of his speech impediment but because of it?

This book is funny and charming as can be. You will laugh out loud and your children will be giggling uncontrollably. And you will be oh, so proud of Wodney...
