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 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.
