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. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"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."-- "SLJ."

I recommend this book for (all). Moral: it doesn't matter if you're different you're still special.
There are two illustrated versions of this book but this one is definitely the nicer one. It's really nice that it's now available as an ebook because I can project the images for all to see.
