A Trumpet-Playing Swan

What happens when a trumpeter swan cannot make the trumpet call?  How will he woo the lovely swan, Serena?  Maybe by learning to play a brass trumpet made by humans?  The Trumpet of the Swan, by E. B. White, is a classic children's novel recommended for readers ages 9-12, but older readers will also find it charming, clever, witty, and loads of fun.  If you want to see a truly great writer in action, then White's your man.  I heartily recommend it.
