    Louis is a Trumpeter Swan, but he has no voice. Leaving his wild and beautiful home, he finds a young human friend, Sam Beaver, who helps him learn to read and write. When he returns to the lake, Louis discovers his education isn't enough: the beautiful swan he loves, Serena, can't read his declarations of love, and he can't trumpet them. Louis' resolution to win the swan of his desire launches him on an adventure that will take him far from home and lead where fate and love have a few surprises in store.

    Tamara Schneider says: "Perfect first audio book for kids"

    Story

    Out of his vast library of children's audiobooks, this is the one my 7-year-old son keeps coming back to as his preferred listen for falling asleep each night. Something about EB White's voice is both captivating and reassuring (his narration of Charlotte's Web is also excellent). I think it's an excellent story for kids age 4 and up. Boys especially are likely to identify with the characters of Sam (the boy) and Louis (the swan).
