JennTNAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great book with a cautionJune 7, 2012JennTNAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is a wonderful read. It was fun and engaging for both myself and my 8 year old. Each chapter leaves you wondering what will happen to Louis next. This story is full of valuable lessons. It is about Louis, a trumpeter swan who is unable to make noise. His father tries to help by stealing a trumpet. Knowing this is the wrong thing to do Louis sets out to right the wrong and secure his future. The only word of caution I have for this book is that in chapter 13 there is a small section where Louis has his friend use a razor to cut his webbing on one of his feet. I felt that this material was a little inappropriate for a young reader. Skipping that small section did not ruin the rest of the book in any way. It might be beneficial to read chapter 13 before allowing a child to read it so each parent can judge whether or not that section is suitable for their child to read. Towards the end of the book something happens with Louis's father that seems really bad, but to me it was worth reading through that part. This book is definitely worth purchasing!
