Swan Song

Like the rest of his family, Louis is a trumpeter swan. But unlike his four brothers and sisters, Louis can't trumpet joyfully. In fact, he can't even make a sound. And since he can't trumpet his love, the beautiful swan Serena pays absolutely no attention to him.

Louis tries everything he can think of to win Serena's affection--#8212;he even goes to school to learn to read and write. But nothing seems to work. Then his father steals him a real brass trumpet. Is a musical instrument the key to winning Louis his love?

Synopsis:

Although he lacks a voice in the traditional sense, trumpeter swan Louis learns to speak to the world with a trumpet stolen from a music store by his father. The swan has some rather unswanlike adventures and ultimately wins the love--and the freedom--of a beautiful swan named Serena. A special color edition on high quality paper.

Synopsis:

White's classic story contains original illustrations by Caldecott Honor artist Fred Marcellino that are rendered in a beautiful sepia-toned color for this special color edition. Illustrations.
