Tournament of books Annabelle Chang THE TRUMPET of the SWAN v.s TALES OF A Fourth Grade Nothing
I chose The Trumpet of the Swan
There was a swan named Louis who was born without a sound . When Louis grew up, his father stole a trumpet for Louis so he could speak. Louis felt sorry for the music storekeeper and wanted to pay him back. Since Louis had a trumpet, he could play music. Louis was able to pay the storekeeper by playing music to other people and he lived happily ever after.
My favorite part was how he made money to help his father pay back the store. I like how he was determined to overcome his physical challenges. Also, he was brave because he dared to have his web cut to be a better musician. That could be very dangerous!
