Mischievous Robert Morris Reynolds can't even say his name right. His "r's" come out as "w's"-until a wise speech therapist promises him a special rock when he can pronounce the word "rock" properly. Robert's struggle to earn that rock leads him to become aware of other's feelings.

"Characterizations are superb; even minor characters are portrayed with depth and roundness unusual in such a brief, accessible novel." The Horn Book

"An amiable slice-of-life story. Economically told and often touching, this is a good portrait of a good- and brave- boy." The Bulletin of the Center of Children's Literature
