Sab Samuel, who performs as Aida H Dee, has been touring libraries to read stories to local children. He was in St Ives, Penzance, Falmouth, Bodmin, Callington, Torpoint, Camelford, Bude and Launceston this week . Despite protesters voicing their opposition to the events outside the Cornish libraries and claiming they 'sexualise children', the readings have proven extremely popular. Some of them, including in Bude and Torpoint, sold out with people begging Sab to come back.

. Cheering could be heard from the library as the drag queen read stories, including his own book about three goats, which tackles bullying. As the families left the story hour session, parents and children asked for selfies with Aida. One mum from Bodmin who attended the event told CornwallLive: "It was hilarious and really good fun - my kids loved it and wanted to come because they love RuPaul's Drag Race. There was nothing sexual about it." Cornwall Council leader Linda Taylor said: “There is so much going on in Cornwall’s libraries with activities to suit every age group to get children engaged, listening and learning whilst having a lot of fun. “Drag Queen Story Hour is one example. These events offer children a rich experience in story telling in an interactive way. Developing reading skills and an understanding of different communities provides children with a positive start in life that in turn can reduce inequalities." Sab performed as Aida in Brighton yesterday and the event became the best attended show so far. However, two of the character's events have now been rescheduled after she received kidnapping threats and was 'cornered' by a group of threatening men. Her team wrote on Facebook: "Today after performing to the largest audience in the UK and having the largest supporter turnout at Jubilee Library, Aida H Dee was cornered in one of the back streets of Brighton by two large blacked out vehicles - multiple men got out surrounding Aida's car causing immense stress and fear of safety, throwing things on the car, displaying threatening behaviour, and shouting "where's your police escort now?!" Due to recent kidnapping threats on Aida, the decision was made to reschedule the 2nd and 3rd Story Hours."
