“The Trumpet of the Swan” by E.B. White

Prime objective of this lecture is to present on “The Trumpet of the Swan” by E.B. White. The Trumpet of the Swan is a children’s novel by E.B. White published in 1970. It tells the story of Louis, a trumpeter swan born without a voice and trying to overcome it by learning to play a trumpet. The Trumpeter Swan is the largest waterfowl species native to North America. Most Trumpeters weigh 21-30 pounds, although large males may exceed 35 pounds. The male is called a cob; the female is called a pen. With a wingspan over 7 feet, these snow-white birds are truly spectacular. Standing on the ground, an adult Trumpeter stands about 4 feet high.
