Title: Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed

A book about a cat? Been there, done that. A dog? Ho-hum. A bird (say, a pigeon?) So many! "NAKED MOLE RATE GETS DRESSED" provides childrens book readers and readees with a welcome and very fun break. Yes! Naked mole rats do exist in real life - you can look it up. Do they also like to get dressed up once in a while? We like to think that they just might! A very fun and funny book with an important message about diversity. Enjoy!

Spring '09 Kids List

“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


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.
