    1. For those of you who are familiar with E.B. White, the author of Charlotte’s Web, you may have read or at least heard of the book, the Trumpet of the Swan. It’s a story about a lovely swan couple that gives birth to 5 little cygnets, and one of them isn’t able to make the trumpeter sounds like a typical swan. The Trumpet of the Swan, like all of White’s novels, concerns a youngster who must overcome a problem. In Louis’s case, he is a trumpeter swan born without a voice; he cannot make the magnificent “ko-hoh” that all trumpeter swans use to find mates, ward off foxes and rule the lake.
