Ladybug knows she was born to be a star. She can't wait to sing and dance in her newest musical, which will be her best show ever. Ladybug won't let anyone get in the way of her performance...especially her little brother, Fly. He's a pest! But Fly is determined to be part of the act, no matter what. Is the show big enough for this sibling rivalry?

This sing-along, read-aloud, funny tribute to the budding Broadway star in all of us is sure to be a smash hit, and shows that working together really does pay off.

Praise for Pest in Show

"Sure to tickle the fancy of fun- and pun-loving youngsters and would-be young stars. This silly read-, dance-, and sing-aloud could be a smash hit."--Kirkus Reviews

"Brimming with buggy puns, wordplay, reworked classics (“I’m Housefly the garbage man,” set to the tune of “Popeye the Sailor Man,” is the standout), matched in tone by Jamieson’s brash collage and acrylic cartoons."--SLJ
