Tabitha and Magoo dress up too

2020

by Michelle Tea and Ellis van der Does

"Tabitha and Magoo love to play dress up in their room. Tabitha uses her brother’s shirts to make superhero capes, and Magoo uses his sister’s frilly skirts to fashion a gown. They’re disappointed to think they can’t go outside in their new outfits, but then the gorgeous drag queen Morgana magically appears! With the help of their new friend, they learn to defy restrictive gender roles and celebrate being themselves. The trio, dressed in colorful costumes and riding in a flying car, then heads to the local library for a diverse and fun-filled story time." -- publisher
