Louis tries everything he can think of to win Serena's affection;he even goes to school to learn to read and write. But nothing seems to work. Then his father steals him a real brass trumpet. Is a musical instrument the key to winning Louis his love?
I confess to wanting to read this for years! Aidan is in grade two and the book is appropriate for 7 year olds. What a delightful and witty book to read! The book built strong, approachable, and endearing characters. Beside the main character Louis, the old cob, the mother swan, Sam, and even Applegate all leave lasting memories. I love Sam Beaver's character and his appreciation for nature, living things, and journaling. He's a great role model for children. I'm glad that there was a happy ending and we were able to celebrate this as our second big chapter book that we completed.
I loved this book and the wonderful way the author handled the issue of being different and making the best of our God given gifts. A great story of encouragement for all ages, especially, for anyone with disabilities of any kind.
