Gideon Elephant Shrew's Story
Gideon has been trying to learn to play 26 musical instruments, one for every letter of the alphabet. Currently the only hole in his collection is the banjo. At first it was just difficult to find an elephant shrew sized banjo, so he just moved on to the cello. However, now that he’s learned the zither, he’s come back to that elusive banjo and it’s proving quite difficult to master. Gideon is determined though, no matter how long it takes.
