Praise for If You're a Drag Queen and You Know It - 

“The classic children’s action song gets a fabulous twist. Drag queens take center stage in this adaptation of 'If You’re Happy and You Know It.' The lively, colorful illustrations and the characters’ wild costumes will engage readers from the first page…. Adults will enjoy reintroducing children to a new version of a timeless childhood song. And of course, for libraries participating in Drag Queen Story Hour, this title is a must! A delightful spin on an old musical favorite.”
 —Kirkus Reviews

"A beautifully illustrated children’s book that will be a fun, joyous, nightly read for the kids, with the possibility to make it into a fun song! It features inclusivity on every page and makes sure the entire book is full of beautifully styled illustrations."—Out Front Magazine
