Praise

"This book's gonna werk, werk, werk all through Pride Month and beyond. Drag persona Lil Miss Hot Mess rewrites 'The Wheels on the Bus' to create a fun, movement-filled, family-friendly celebration of drag. . . . Appropriately psychedelic. . . . Fun, fun, fun all through the town!"—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"It's much more than a parody. It's an expression of the collectiveness of the drag community."—
