Hillman, Jonathan - Big Wig
In the spirit of Julián Is a Mermaid, this irrepressible picture book celebrates drag kids, individuality, and self-confidence from the perspective of a fabulous wig! When a child dresses in drag to compete in a neighborhood costume competition, he becomes B. B. Bedazzle! A key part of B.B. Bedazzle’s ensemble is a wig called Wig. Together they are an unstoppable drag queen team! But Wig feels inadequate compared to the other, bigger wigs. When Wig flies off B. B.’s head, she goes from kid to kid instilling confidence and inspiring dreams in those who wear her: Wig remembers what wigs can do. Wig brushes the world, bolder, brighter hues. Wig hears whispered wishes… and turns them into something true. The bigger their dreams, the bigger Wig seems.
