This was one of my favorite children's books when I was in elementary school. I prefer this to Charlotte's Web or Stuart Little. Louis the swan goes on several adventures to find his voice and win his true love, Serene.

In my opinion one of the best books ever written for children or adults. But then what else would you expect from E. B. White.

Although he lacks a voice in the traditional "Ko-hoh!" sense, trumpeter swan Louis learns to speak to the world with a trumpet stolen from a music store by his father. With the support of an unusual boy named Sam, who helps Louis learn how to read and write, the swan has some rather unswanlike adventures and ultimately wins the love--and the freedom--of a beautiful swan named Serena.

For over 30 years, E.B. White's masterpiece has captured the fancy of countless readers

A wonderful story by the author of Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little, this is the tale of a Trumpeter Swan born without a voice. Spurned by the other swans, because he's different, Louis has a series of adventures in his quest to fulfill his dreams.

This was a very calm and easy read. I thought it was a little young but thought it had a good moral to the story. I didn't realize E.B. White had written other books besides Charlottes Web.
