One of the best Christmas gifts I've ever gotten. My niece and nephew gave me this book after I took them to Disney's Animal Kingdom where, while everyone else was grossed out, I was absolutely enamored by the ADORABLE naked mole rats. A sweet story by a fantastic children's writer, about finding your own unique style. It's okay if not everyone thinks the same -- everyone is entitled to their own opinion. So long as it makes you happy, and doesn't hurt anyone else -- why not try something new?

“Wilbur is a naked mole rat who prefers to wear clothes, which appalls the other naked mole rats, who try to get him to change. I won't tell you how it all works out, other than to say that Mo Willems' latest is wonderful!”
— Eric Robbins, Apple Valley Books, Winthrop, ME

Description


Wilbur is different from the other Naked Mole Rats in his Colony, because "he" wears clothes (and he likes it ). But what will happen when Grandpah, the oldest, wisest, and most naked Naked Mole Rat ever discovers Wilbur's secret?
Funnyman and three-time Caldecott Honoree Mo Willems exposes the naked truth about being yourself and wearing it well.
