This book is about a baby swan who has a speech problem. His name is Louis. When his father tells him that he's different, he gets scared. His father promises that he will help to make Louis talk.
When it is mating season, Louis falls in love with Serena. But he can't say, "Ko-Ko" to get her to be his bride.
Read the book to find out what happens to Louis and Serena.
I like the book, because I like swans.
My favorite part is when Louis plays "Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me".
I liked Louis, because he was a good trumpet player.
I recommend the book to people that like swans
