THE MAN WITH THE VIOLIN is a picture book based on a true story: in January 2007, famous violinist Joshua Bell went undercover as a street musician and played a free concert in a Washington, D.C., metro station. Over a thousand people passed by as he played, but only seven stopped to listen for more than a minute. Joshua Bell noticed that children often wanted to stop, but their parents hurried them along. This picture book, written by Kathy Stinson and illustrated by Dusan Petricic, imagines what the subway concert might have been like from the perspective of one of those children.
