"Rodney Rat, who can't pronounce his R's, is the shyest, most miserable kid in school, until one day he saves his classmates from the mean bully Camilla Capybara. Wodney's transformation from cowering to empowered is beautifully underscored in the humorous, expressive illustrations. Appealingly, Wodney doesn't need to overcome his impediment to be liked--and it's the impediment itself and Wodney's clever use of it that foils the villain." Horn Book
A shy rodent turns his defect into strength to overcome class bully and save the day. Every page is a delight in this imaginative book, which culminates in surprising word play. Energetic illustrations capture perfectly the characters of timid Rodney, the overbearing Camilla Capybara, and their rowdy rodent classmates.

The other rodents compensate for Rodney's inability to say the letter "R" -- they do what he means, not what he says. Camilla, however, doesn't know Rodney, or any of the other rodents. Camilla is focused exclusively on herself. She thinks she is the biggest, the smartest, and the best. She hears what Rodney says and she does what he says. While other rodents "read" the sign, Camilla hears "weed the sign" and begins to weed it.
Soon Rodney understands what is happening. He sees that, by using his speech difficulty, he can get the other rodents to "go rest," but he can get Camilla to "go west."
Rodney becomes a hero, as he deserves to be because he uses his skills to achieve a desired result.
