Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"In the opening pages of this buoyant picture book, Willems (Knuffle Bunny) informs readers that 'for this story' they need only know three things about naked mole rats: '1. They are a little bit rat. 2. They are a little bit mole. 3. They are all naked.' The exception to point number three, however, is Wilbur, who revels in a wardrobe that ranges from a turtleneck and beret to an astronaut suit — infuriating his brethren. When the naked mole rats complain to their leader, Grand-pah, he gathers the colony and issues a proclamation. Happily for Wilbur, it's a call for tolerance. Willems is fully aware that nudity = comic gold for this audience, and his legion of emotive, square-headed rodents — far cuter than in real life — are paired successfully with droll prose ('Grand-pah did look heroic. Grand-pah did look regal. But he would also look heroic and regal in a casual shirt and some summer slacks'). Straightforward and engaging. Ages 3 – up." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

About the Author

Number one New York Times best-selling author and illustrator Mo Willems started his career on Sesame Street, where he garnered six Emmy Awards for his writing before changing the face of children's literature with his groundbreaking picture books. Mo has been awarded a Caldecott Honor on three occasions (for Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus , Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale, and Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity). In addition, his acclaimed Elephant & Piggie early reader series received the Theodor Seuss Geisel Medal in 2008 for There Is a Bird on Your Head. Mo lives with his family in Massachusetts, where he's almost always fully dressed.

We've been on a Mo Willems kick around our house. Just picked this one up at Powell's yesterday and it's instantly a favorite. There's naked mole rats, one. And two, Naked Mole Rats!!! Though my husband still thinks the Knuffle Bunny series is the best, my bet is that this one might edge it out in time. Oh, and my kids love it too.
