I read a book about a rat named Wodney Wat. Wodney was a little rat that couldn't say words with "r's". There was a big rat in the story named Camilla, and she was very mean. All of the kids in the class were scared of her.

One day, all the rats were playing Simon Says. Wodney was Simon, and Camilla could not understand what he was saying because he couldn't say words with "r's." If Wodney wanted to say "go rest" he would say "go west" instead.

My favorite part was when Wodney said "wake the leaves" and Camilla started yelling at the leaves to wake them up! That part was so funny!

I think everyone should read this book because it will make you laugh alot. I don't think you should laugh because Wodney says his words funny. I think you will laugh because Camilla does everything wrong!
