Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Trumpet of the Swan is a 2001 animated film. It has some tension and peril but is a fine family film based on E.B. White's story. Louie's father breaks a store window and steals a trumpet. The father is chased and shot at. Louie and Boyd fight over the girl they both like. A fox tries to attack some swans. A mean boy is about to go over a waterfall, but Louie swoops in to save him. Louie flies through a lightning storm. Convinced that his son will be a failure because he doesn't have a beautiful swan voice, Louie's dad risks his life to find a voice substitute. An unscrupulous human tries to take advantage of Louie's great talents. Name-calling includes "creep," "feather breath," and "worm eater."
