"This sparkling story of a show-biz hopeful--and family bonds--will inspire your young star to dream big." --Working Mother

"All young ones who dream of dressing up and performing will find a kindred spirit in Nena. This should play to sold-out audiences." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"LaChanze, a star of stage and screen herself, supplies a peek at the life of a Broadway performer in this enticing story about a girl's dream of one day conquering the Great White Way. ... Youngsters, girls in particular, will pore over the pictures and imagine themselves right into the story. Look out America-this book is sure to increase its numbers of D.I.T.s [Divas in Training]." --School Library Journal

"Imagine a triple billing of Fancy Nancy, Olivia, and Eloise, and you'll have a sense of the energy, ambition, and sheer (yet still-to-be-fully-honed) talent of Little Diva. Her creator, a Tony Award-winning actress, has produced a realistic and endearing character who dreams of taking to the stage like her mother, a Broadway star, with whom she lives in a loving home that includes her grandmother and dog." --Booklist

"Loose, wispy black line art with pastel-toned washes playfully convey Nena's constant motion and exuberance as she describes her day." --Publishers Weekly
