My Review
Katy on Broadway is a cute children's book about a cat named Katy who wants to be famous. She loves to sing. She needs to sing. It's a part of who she is. But no one seems to like her singing. Gerry the Squirrel throws acorns at her, and even the birds tell her to leave the singing to them. But Katy refuses to give up.
One day, she's had enough of Gerry and leaps at him. But she ends up running too far, and then she's lost. She meets up with an alley cat named Weasel, and he tells her she can sing. This gives her a boost of confidence, and Katy is even more determined to become famous.
But will her dream ever come true? And will she ever find her way back home?
I thought this was a cute story. The illustrations are delightful, and the story is fun and easy to read. Kids will enjoy following along with Katy on her journey to stardom. And once the book is over, kids will want more adventures with Katy. It's a wonderful start to a cute new series for young readers. 
5 stars!

About the author and illustrator Ella English

Ella English has been passionate about art ever since she held her first paintbrush at age three, and was encouraged by her family to pursue art ever since. She is the mother of two grown daughters who loved books, ballet and singing when they were small. She decided to start writing and illustrating books when she realized how important it was to nurture creativity in children. Her hope is that this book will encourage parents to be proud of their children’s singing, no matter what it sounds like! She lives in Baltimore with her three cats, including a singing black and white tuxedo called Mouse. This yowling kitty inspired her to write this story about a lovable New York cat who is bored with her everyday life and longs to break free and sing to an audience beyond the critters in her garden who tell her she can’t sing.
