A little information on the book from the dust jacket in part: Louis is a Trumpeter Swan who came into the world lacking a voice. Louis’s determination to become a trumpeter and pay off his father’s dept takes him far from the wilderness he loves. But he succeeds and wins the swan of his desiring with a lot to over come.

Virginia Haviland writes: Surely there is no other author whose new (at that time) book one would reach for with such sure anticipation. No one else could bring off, so marvelously well, that extraordinary blend of real wildlife and nature and the utterly fantastic.

And the beautiful details, the sweetness of relationships poignant without this time being sad also make you know that this is the author of Charlotte’s Web. E. B. White’s wonderful story of Louis’s struggles to express the music in his heart with Edward Frascino’s beautiful wash drawings is a paean to courage, to freedom, to love and to swans everywhere.

What else can you say but a great book for all children to read, a true classic!
