Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed

We've been waiting for weeks.
Mo Willems in St. Paul at the Red Balloon children's bookstore.

He was very entertaining and funny. He read his new book "Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed" and "I'm Going to Play Outside."

One child asked him where he gets his ideas for his books. Mo answered that he gets his ideas from a box that creates a piece of paper that he gets every month, called a mortgage.

Mo also told us that he had visited a museum of Charles Schultz' works. They gave him one of Schultz' pen nibs. He used that nib to draw the pictures in the Naked Mole book.

Flash photos were not allowed, so the following pictures are not real crisp.

Emma. A signed book. A drawing of the naked mole rat.

Emma, Grace, Zeke, Levi, Eli and Mr. Willems.

Zeke spent the book-signing time flipping his way through card books and pointing at various letters and saying "T," "S," "P," and so on.
