Wodney Wat’s Wobot by Helen Lester
Summary: 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.
What I liked about the book: I love these stories about Wodney, an adorable character who demonstrates that it’s ok to not be perfect. Wodney does not let his speech impediment hold him back. I like that even though Camilla is the same mean spirited character from Hooway For Wodney Wat, she does manage to be helpful to Wodney when she is the only one to figure out how to fix the robot. This book, like the previous one is a great story about overcoming bullies and other challenges.
What I didn’t like about the book: I liked it all.
