This shy fellow, a wallflower, swallows a cello, followed by many more musical instruments, until at last he burps, belches, and bellows. Imagine how the instruments make music this way. Using her love of words and music, Barbara S. Garriel has created a zany and wild new look at an old favorite, There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, and added a surprise ending. John O'Brien's wacky and imaginative illustrations bring the read-aloud book to life.
