This beloved book by E. B. White, author of Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little, is a classic of children's literature that perfectly describes what it's like to march to the beat of your own drummer.
Louis is a trumpeter swan, but unlike the rest of his family, he can't make a sound. And since he can't trumpet his love, the beautiful swan Serena pays no attention to him. But when his father steals him a real brass trumpet, Louis has to find out if it's the key to what he's wanted all along.
E. B. White's classic book is a tender novel of overcoming the odds and learning to do things on your own terms. It will continue to be enjoyed by generations to come. It contains evocative illustrations by Fred Marcellino, the acclaimed illustrator of Puss in Boots and I, Crocodile, among many other books.
