Daddy is the Mystery Reader at Tori’s school today! And he’s coming dressed as Miss Rita! Tori helps Daddy gloss, glitter, glamour, and glimmer to get ready. It takes time—because sparkle is serious business! Tori loves helping Daddy become Miss Rita. But will the other kids at school love Miss Rita like Tori does? Luckily, a last-minute idea helps Daddy and Tori find a way to make story time sparkle for everyone.

This sparkly family story encourages every kid to let their sparkle shine! And it includes back matter explaining the history of drag performance.
