Item description for Hooway for Wodney Wat by Helen Lester & Lynn Munsinger...

All his classmates make fun of Rodney because he can't pronounce the r's in his name, but it is Rodney's speech impediment that drives away Camilla Capybera, the class bully. By the creators of Tacky in Trouble. 12,500 first printing.

Publishers Description
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.

Hooway for Wodney Wat  May 9, 2008
This is a delightful book with a happy ending and a big emphasis on phonics. It is also a great opportunity to stress the concept of kindness to others.
Best kids book for adults to read!  Jan 18, 2008
This book is the best kids book I have ever read. It's fun to read and has a good message for kids.
Great elementary aged book  Dec 16, 2007
This is an excellent book for teaching children that others with speech impediments are not to be excluded or bullied. Through colorful illustrations and wonderful writing the author really captures the lesson and teaches it well. Plus, the "wat is weally cute!"
Great Book - beautifully illustrated!  Feb 9, 2007
This is a great book. I actually bought this for my daughter who is an elementary education major - she wants to build up her own 'children's library'. The reason I got it was because my boss's children (two boys who are 4 and 6 LOVED this book last summer and would ask for it to be read over and over again). Lovely book. Sent very quickly and not damaged in transit.
The Teased One's Time To Shine --- Bwilliant!  Dec 10, 2005
Rodney Rat is feeling "wather" down. He can't even pronounce his own name because he always pronounces his "rs" as "ws." All the other rodents at his school tease him --- the guinea pigs, the mice and others. He eats his lunch alone and he hides his head underneath his jacket. Then a new rodent shows up, a capybara, who's bigger than any of them and seems like she might be smarter too. But maybe Rodney can outwit her and turn his pronunciation problem to his advantage.

This is a very nice book for schoolchildren or anyone who likes picture books. I've had some speech issues in the past myself, so I can identify with the main character. It also helps that I like small fuzzies like rats, mice and guinea pigs (and they are all very cute.)

The illustrations are colorful and detailed, with lots of little things for visual interest. The colors are generally pretty soft and soothing. The illusrations are a mix of full and partial page and add very nicely to the story being told in the main text.
