This was a very good book. It was interesting how Louis could do some things humans could do. The plot was good, and the characters were well built. I recommend this book to all ages.

This book is very amusing as a swan somehow plays a trumpet. You will soon be hooked by the book after reading the first chapter.

We just finished reading this book aloud with our kids (ages 6 & 9). The whole family loved it! Beautiful descriptions of wildlife, and a fun story. Every bit as enjoyable as Charlotte's Web.

EB White's love for birds and lakes and wildlife shines through in this lovely book. It is every bit as wonderful as Charlotte's Web. Would make a delightful read aloud for elementary students.

My son (8 years old, 3 grade) loves this book so much, that he asked to get some other books by the same author.
