The latest addition to Huxley’s Library: Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed by Mo Willems. Here’s Mo:
Willems explores, through the story of a dresser in a naked world, the social angst of unconformity as it can only be explored in the milieu of Bathyergids. Wilber, a Heterocephalus glaber with a penchant for pants, is at first disdained then accepted but only after a positive word from the mole rat Patriarch.
The plot is riveting and the theme tense and poignant, but suspension of disbelief is challenged near the end because Naked Mole Rats do not have Patriarchs. They have Matriarchs.
But whatever. I still recommend it highly for the Zero to Five set.
Thank you Lizzie for giving Huxley the book!
