I Know a Shy Fellow Who Swallowed a Cello

I Know a Shy Fellow Who Swallowed a Cello
Garriel, Barbara S.; O'Brien, John (Illustrator)

He's shy, a wallflower. He's the man at the side of the room listening to a duet for cello and viola. Even now you wouldn't notice him. But our shy fellow suddenly has an urge to swallow a cello, which is precisely what he does. And he doesn't stop there. He follows it with a harp, a sax, and a fiddle. On and on he goes, trying to satisfy his voracious appetite for musical instruments. A strange diet, you say? It's the perfect diet for a strange fellow, astrange, shy fellow.


An adaptation of the folk rhyme "There was an old woman who swallowed a fly," featuring musical instruments.
