The Trumpet of the Swan

I thought for the summer I'd "review" the books that we are reading aloud. This week we read The Trumpet of the Swan by EB White. Princess wanted me to read the whole book in one sitting, but five chapters at a time was about all my voice could handle! We loved this book!!!! I don't remember reading it as a child and I'm sorry that I missed it. Louis was such an interesting character and it was fun to follow his struggles and his journies. I also enjoyed Louis father, you could just picture how proud and regal he was. I highly recommend this book! Here are a few questions that I asked princess(and her answers) about the book...

Was the book good or bad?

Who was your favorite character?

What was your favorite part of the book?
When Serena fell in love with Louis and later they had babies.

What did you think was the funniest part of the book?
When Serena put her head on Louis's head

Would you read the book again?

I can't wait to read this book to dd. I never read it as a child. We just did Charlotte's Web and that was a big hit.
