Book Details

A charming and heartfelt picture book about a little bird who dreams of making it big on Broadway, from Tony Award-winning Broadway director Alex Timbers.

What Louisa loved most about living in Times Square wasn't the buzzzz of the city...
No, it was that she could sing as loud as she wanted. She could sing all day and she could sing all night.
Louisa was truly a Broadway bird.


Louisa is a tiny parakeet with a HUGE dream: to be a Broadway star. But no matter what she does, everyone keeps telling her she's too small to make it big! When a chance at her big break comes, Louisa learns that no matter how small you are, with a little talent and a lot of hard work, you can do anything - even be on Broadway!

With colorful, charming illustrations by artist Alisa Coburn, this heartfelt picture book from renowned Broadway director Alex Timbers is about persistence, believing in yourself, and, of course, the magic of Broadway.
