Synopses & Reviews
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.

Kids of all ages are gonna love the new lyrics to their old favorite tunes. It doesn't get any silly dillier than this!
