Description

Louis is a Trumpeter Swan who was born without a voice. When his father explained to him that he was different than other cygnets, Louis felt scared. His father, however, promised to help.
---
Sam Beaver, a boy who loved all wild things, took Louis to school, where he learned to read and write. This was a help, but it did not aid Louis in winning the heart of the beautiful swan, Serena. And that was when Louis's father did a difficult thing - he put honor aside and stole a trumpet so his son would be able to woo his love. Louis's determination to become a trumpeter and pay off his father's debt takes him far from the wilderness he loves.
---
E.B. White's wonderful story of Louis's struggle to express the music in his heart is a tribute to courage, to freedom, to love - and to swans everywhere.
