For the most part, while I do like to read, when it comes to my personal Literature preference, I usually shy away from the new bestsellers in favor of classics. Today, I'll be taking a look at a book I was required to read for my School Schedule: The Trumpet Of The Swan.
The Trumpet Of The Swan follows the tale of Louis, a young Swan that can't talk. If this doesn't make sense at first, let me be a bit more informant. He can't talk, can't sqawk, can't make any Swan-related sounds. Ixnay. So, Louis learns how to play the Trumpet, so he can communicate with all of the other animals. (He also learns how to write, but it's not important at the moment, so let's just pretend that he doesn't.)
Pretty soon, Louis becomes a professional Trumpeter and starts playing at high-class establishments, such as Hotels, Restaurants, and the like. THe story may seem bland on paper, but it gets very interesting, despite seeming simple and childish. Louis has to go through many complicated decisions that do a good job of reflecting real life. Though, if I do have a gripe with this book is that, like many Classical Books, the ending is way too sudden, and doesn't do a terribly good job of wrapping up any loose ends.
Can I recommend The Trumpet Of The Swan to you, the reader? Yes, I can. It's pretty short, despite being around 200+ pages long, and it's something that would fit perfectly on my list of books that I would read more than once (Along with the How To Train Your Dragon series, Hatchet, and The Magician's Nephew.)
