The Lost Cymbal

the_lost_symbolSo I’m presently reading Dan Brown’s “The Lost Symbol”, and I thought how cool it would be if Dan Brown’s next book was a kid’s story about a musical hippopotamus named Jerome who plays percussion in the school band, but misplaces one of the crash cymbals one day.  The story would be about Jerome’s search for something that you can use to make a cymbal sound (what’s the sound of one cymbal crashing?), and eventually discovering a giant conspiracy of woodwind players determined to overthrow what they see as the patriarchy of percussion…. wait! What?!  Okay, maybe not that last part… he could probably end the story by finding the cymbal and making the school band concert a triumph.

Mostly, I just want to read a story about a musical hippo… it would have to be at least as good as Langdon’s latest adventure…
