Auntie Uncle : drag queen hero

Auntie Uncle : drag queen hero

Royce, Ellie, author
2020

Told from the perspective of her adoring nephew, Auntie Uncle: Drag Queen Hero is the story of a courageous drag queen who saves the day and brings two communities together. The narrator thinks it's awesome that his Uncle and his Auntie are the same person. Uncle Leo is an accountant, and is great at helping with math homework. Auntie Lotta is a fabulous performer who loves to sing at home with her nephew. One day Lotta's family comes to watch her perform at the local pride parade. Suddenly, a dog breaks free of its leash and nearly causes a float-crash, but Lotta springs into action just in time to save the dog and the parade. The mayor wants to give her a medal for courage and to celebrate with all her friends, but Lotta worries that her friends who only know him as Leo won't get along with her fellow drag performers who know her as Lotta. With the help of her nephew they put together a fierce look that is both Leo and Lotta, the perfect ensemble for an Auntie Uncle.
