  • Episode Description
  • "Violet's Music" Lionel is inside the library singing and playing the drums. Cleo manages to stop him long enough for her to read the story Violet's Music, written by Angela Johnson and illustrated by Laura Huliska-Beith. The story is about a little girl who plays music all her life and searches for other kids who enjoy it as much she does. After hearing the story, Lionel decides to start a band, which Cleo suggests he conduct from the roof of the library. "What Instrument Does Alvin Play?" Leona wants to play an instrument and therefore is looking over some with Theo. She likes the look of both the saxophone and the violin, but she really isn't sure which instrument to choose. Theo reads the story What Instrument Does Alvin Play?, an original story. When Leona learns just what instrument it is that Alvin plays, she wants to play that instrument too. At the end of the show, she, Lionel and the band briefly play the Cliff Hanger theme.moreless

    Trivia (2)

    • Blending Bowl: "M" and "arch" blend together make the word "march" in a fantastic play.

    • The Adventures of Cliff Hanger: Cliff Hanger hears the music of a marching band on his cliff in Adventure 1,000,001: Cliff Hanger and the Marching Band. After consulting his trusty manual, he asks to join them. They tell him he has to show his skill first, so he plays a variation on the Cliff Hanger theme tune on the tuba. Unfortunately, the band already has too many tuba players. He asks if they can at least give him a hand and they all applaud as they march away.
