When clothing suddenly falls from the sky, Wilbur J. Mole Rat rocks the colony with his decision to get dressed! In a community where baring is caring and skin is in, can Wilbur find the courage to march to the beat of his own drum? Or better yet, rock to the rhythm of his own electric guitar? This rollicking adaptation of Mo Willems’ beloved picture book explores what can happen when we have the courage to be ourselves.
