You don't need new illustrations to appreciate the magnificence of the scenic images conjured by E.B.White's prose. My favorite book of middle childhood, this book has it all - science, whimsical fancy, unique characters... plus the most rooted-for waterfowl since Make Way For Ducklings. You will appreciate your own unique gifts and ways of overcoming obstacles after experiencing Louis' swan journey.
