"The next morning, which was the last Sunday in August, all three Bellinis came to open the newsstand. They could hardly believe what had happened yesterday and were anxious to see if Chester would continue to sing familiar songs...'Hey, Mr. Smedley- my cricket plays hymns!' Mario blurted out before the music teacher had a chance to say good morning. 'I see we've all become very fond of our cricket. But aren't we letting our imagination run away with us a bit?' 'Oh no,' said Mario. 'Just listen. He'll do it again.'"
