Tabitha and Magoo Dress Up Too

by Michelle Tea Author and Ellis van der Does Author

In this sweet children's book about gender expression and the magic of dress up, siblings Tabitha and Magoo love dressing up in each other's clothing. Magoo likes wearing Tabitha's frilly skirts, and Tabitha likes making superhero capes out of Magoo's shirts. But they're not allowed to go out into the world in their outfits. Until Morgana the drag queen comes along. Morgana shows them they can wear whatever they want, and takes them out in a flying purple convertible to a storytelling hour at the local library. This cutely illustrated book about self-expression is a great way to introduce children to the idea that their concept of themselves matters a whole heck of a lot more than what society thinks.
