The Trumpet of the Swan

Our rating: ****

Louis is different from all the other cygnets in one way: he lacks a voice. A Trumpeter Swan without a voice is a rather unheard of thing, and his father risks his life to bring Louis a trumpet. Louis learns how to play and sets out to earn enough money to pay for the stolen trumpet.

An enjoyable read. E. B. White’s style of writing can be rather humorous at times. The idea of a Trumpeter Swan actually playing a trumpet is rather whimsical.
