Louis, a trumpeter swan, has one major problem: He has no voice. How can he communicate? A boy named Sam helps him, taking him to school so he can learn to read and write. But other swans can't read, so Louis still can't communicate with them. Then Sam's father finds a trumpet in a music store—and Louis finally finds his voice.

This imaginative tale has delighted generations of children (and their parents and teachers)!
