Review for RuPaul

Review for RuPaul

Mª Isabel Sánchez Vegara , RuPaul, Pink, Mirror, Drag, Dragrace, Non-Fiction, Children's Books, Little People Big Dreams,I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

I just love these Little People BIG Dreams series and I look forward to a new batch each time. So when I saw a new batch appear with RuPaul in the mix? I knew I had to get it and read it!

I haven’t watched a lot of Dragrace, just episodes here and there, but I do love what I have seen. It is a fun show (or should I say shows) and I just love how RuPaul is there, either as himself, or in drag. I was definitely curious how he got to where he is now.

In this book we see just that. From how his childhood was, how even then he stood out, he wasn’t afraid to wear whatever he wanted. How his family loved him. How he got to be the icon he is now. I would at least call him an icon. And very inspiring. I wish I had that much confidence, now and back when I was a kid.

It was very nicely illustrated, I like the style.

The text is simple, but it tells us so much. You learn a whole lot about RuPaul. I didn’t even know he was in a band! Haha, that is amazing!

It was a shame that the text at the end (with the timeline and the photographs) was blank in my ecopy. While it is often a more text-heavy rehash of the story there are sometimes new details found there.

All in all, I would recommend this book to all who want to know more about RuPaul.

Star rating, 4.5 stars
