    This is the funniest shit, I swear The humor in this book is surreal The cob has me in stitches with his over the top florid speeches, but it s the little details that kill me Like how nobody goes crazy when a bird learns how to read and write catastrophe Or like when Louis spends the night at the Ritz, he goes to take a shower and he draws the curtain HE DRAWS THE CURTAIN I m like, LOUIS, YOU ARE A SWAN You ve been naked since the day you were hatched, and all the millions of times you

    I have no idea how I managed to not read this as a kid It s way fun than Stuart Little, not nearly as sad good as Charlotte s Web, but almost as funny Maybe funnier, actually Just like in Charlotte s Web, E.B ends the book with a calm, beautiful, somewhat embarrassing paragraph that I want to fall asleep under, and this time I printed it off and taped it to my wall so that I actually can You can too

    I m re reading this with my kid I loved this book when I read it as a child An all time childhood favorite I really enjoy it now, especially all the literary and biblical references I didn t get when I was Nicco s age I love the over the top flowery sentiments of Louis father It did seem much exciting and dangerous when I was young, and I COMPLETELY missed the disturbing hipocrisy of Louis, the weak and defected cygnet among his siblings, agreeing to sell his own future weak offspring

    I typically don t review children s books here unless they are very long or very good This book is both I m not sure how I escaped reading this as a child but I m certain that I didn t because the story is unique and memorable Louis, a trumpeter swan born without a voice, employs determination and smarts to remedy this obstacle and win the heart of his love, all the while embarking on adventures and working to right wrongs along the way My 8 year old daughter said this book teaches children

    I loved this book growing up and was a little afraid to re read it for fear that the memory would not live up to the reality But I needn t have worried.this is such a delightful fun story Who could not fall in love with Louis the swan as he searches for a way to communicate since he was born without a voice I listened to the audiobook narrated by the author I loved every minute of it it felt like grandpa telling me a story A 5 star experience

    I ve loved this book ever since I was a little kid Trumpet of the Swan, from the author who brought Charlotte s Web and Staurt Little to the world, is a classic about self esteem, love and acceptance, with an almost fairy tale quality to it.

    So the swan named Louis, he went around with a slate because he didn t have any voice And he tried so hard and but he couldn t talk He got a trumpet and a slate, a gold medal for saving someone s life, and guess what He got a money bag because his father stole the trumpet That s it It s a five star book because I liked it a lot My favorite part is when he broke in the door and then the owner of the store came after him and he got the trumpet and he went away I know that is stealing but th
