The Trumpet of the Swan

By E. B. White (2)

Show/Hide Info

E. B. White’s The Trumpet of the Swan links the lives of 11-year-old Sam Beaver and a voiceless cygnet named Louis. Louis, the trumpeter swan, hatches on the shore of a small Canadian pond, where Sam watches in wonder. Louis’ father reassures him that despite his muteness, Louis can lead a full and adventurous life. With Sam’s help, Louis enters school, and learns to read and write using a slate and chalk. When Louis falls in love with Serena, another young swan, he realizes he cannot convince her to become his mate, no matter how expertly he wields his chalk and slate. Seeing the severity of the situation, Louis’ father takes drastic action, crashing into a music store window to steal a trumpet. Louis lives up to his father’s largesse by becoming a tremendous trumpet player. He soon finds work as a musician, and pays for the stolen trumpet and the shop window. From Canada to Boston, Montana to Philadelphia, Louis leads a life in which art overcomes adversity, and love lifts limitations. Children of all ages will enjoy his epic and beautifully rendered journey.
