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. Now, with stunning new art by award-winning illustrator Fred Marcellino, the beloved story can be experienced anew. The sepia-colored drawings lend an old-fashioned charm to the story--it''''s almost as if, with their complementary dry wit and uniquely creative talents, White and Marcellino originally worked together. Marcellino received the Caldecott Honor for his illustrations in Charles Perrault''''s Puss in Boots. --Emilie Coulter


From SLJ
The eventful life of Louis, a voiceless trumpeter swan, from hatching to contented fatherhood. Humor abounds and beauty of nature, of relationships, of time passing shines through [in a] story that will captivate children of all ages.


From AudioFile
In his New England drawl, E.B. White captures our imagination with his splendid reading of his classic children''''s tale. In listening to this unabridged story, one is absolutely taken with the story of Louis, the young cygnet swan who overcomes the handicap of having no voice. If you purchase only a few tapes, this should be part of your collection. The audio production is particularly good, and the sound effects and trumpet playing add a wonderful dimension. Authors are sometimes not the best...


From the Publisher
Luois is a Trumpeter Swan who came into the world lacking a voice. When his father explained to him that he was different from 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 solve his major problem: he was in love with the beautiful swan, Serena, and she spurned him because he was defective. And that was when Louis''''s father, the old cob, 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. But he succeeds and wins the swan of his desiring.
