Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 05/01/2022 A librarian secretly swaps his staid demeanor for a glittery alter ego who delivers showstopper storytimes in this energetic and affirming picture book destined to inspire karaoke battles. Readers’ advisory and library management are no trouble for Mr. Stephen, but programming proves a struggle. So, for storytime and show-and-tell, Mr. Stephen calls in the Sublime Ms. Stacks, who appears in a flourish with a fur-trimmed apron and an abundance of creative flair. “Ta-da!! It’s nice to see you again—and to be seen, my darlings!” Shepherding the children through craft projects and dramatic read-alouds, Ms. Stacks finally launches into karaoke, complete with two “librarian sisters” on backup, before Mr. Stephen returns. Jones’ warm and inclusive digital illustrations feature incidental LGBTQ+ representation throughout, and Pearlman (Pink Is for Boys, 2018) welcomes everyone in with the text’s playful and positive tone. Pair with a playlist, Lil Miss Hot Mess’ The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swish (2020), and Jonathan Hillman’s Big Wig (2022) to fashion a sublime storytime. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
