Review
  • Grades 3-6 Lulu has always dreamed of performing on Broadway. She even lives in a Broadway theater. The problem is that Lulu is a mouse, and she's sure her dream is impossible—most humans dislike mice. Luckily, the theater folk, at least, accept Lulu and her mouse family, and her mom even sews for the play's costumer. Everyone carries Lulu around or sets her at eye level to see or talk with her more easily (of course Lulu talks). The only human Lulu doesn't like is Amanda, the show's mean and self-centered child star. Amanda is loath to give up the spotlight and rarely misses a performance. When Amanda's understudy leaves the show, she's replaced by Jayne, a talented, ""human-sized version of Lulu."" When Amanda unexpectedly gets sick, Jayne gets her chance to go on but freezes. Can Lulu save the day? Readers won't look at a mouse the same way again after reading this sweet, heartfelt, charming debut that's filled with theater trivia and proves that anything is possible if you wish hard enough. -- Sharon Rawlins (Reviewed 10/15/2018) (Booklist, vol 115, number 4, p48)
  • Lulu's dreams are big for a little mouse: starring on Broadway. Lulu lives in the very best house, the Schubert Theatre, on West 44th Street. Her passion is to perform on stage. In a first-person narrative, the little mouse interacts with and assists the cast and crew backstage. Her ability to speak English and her full acceptance despite her rodent nature are givens. The drama of the story revolves around a self-centered child performer, who rarely misses a performance and whom Lulu does not like because she is full of "Sugarcoated meanness," and the very friendly understudy who decides to chuck it all and go home to New Jersey. Can the new understudy overcome her stage fright? Spoiler alert: Dreams can come true for performers of all sizes. Lulu writes with a very chatty, insider's point of view (the author made her debut on Broadway in Gypsy with Bernadette Peters and author Tim Federle) and tosses out references to Broadway luminaries such as Stephen Sondheim and Elaine Stritch along with shows such as Fiddler on the Roof, Oliver!, and Wicked. Cast and crew default to white, with one Italian-American and one guy who "dates men" but flirts with women singled out. Gavigan concludes her tale with a list of recommendations about New York City, proper theater behavior, and how to live your own theatrical dream. Preteens who are star-struck for Broadway will enjoy the drama. (Fantasy. 9-12) (Kirkus Reviews, August 1, 2018)
