Poor Rodney - he can't say the letter "R" and all the teasing from his rodent classmates makes him embarrassed.  Camilla Capybara arrives in the classroom and announces she is bigger, meaner and smarter than anyone - and she is! The whole class fears this new rodent on the block, until Rodney leads them all in a game of Simon Says.  Learn what Rodney does, how he deals with Camilla, and how he becomes a hero, saving the day!  (Jeannie Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards)
