The Fiddler Crab on the Roof
The Fiddler Crab on the Roof is a story of a young fiddler crab in Old Russia. Nobody was able to hear his violin music from anywhere because everyone was too busy to take the time to listen. So he decided to play his song on a roof. He played night and day, day and night, and he didn't stop until he got everyone's attention. He played so beautifully, and everyone grew to love him and his music. His family was very proud. He became known as the Fiddler Crab on the Roof.
Bona Leasha is the most famous painting by Dognardo da Vinci. He wanted to paint Bona Leasha with a smile, but she refused to smile. He tried telling jokes and tickling her paws, but she would not smile. Finally, he gave her a bone and she miraculously had a mysterious smile. Dognardo leapt at the opportunity to paint with the look and called the painting The Bona Leasha.
