The Story of Ferdinand



In Stock Soon


What weabout it
The other bulls want to fight. Ferdinand wants to smell flowers. It’s a peace-loving message that’s charmed readers since 1936.


It’s hard to think of a more lovable character than Ferdinand the Bull, whose peaceful ways put him at odds with the violent animal behavior that surrounds him.

He’s content to be alone with his flowers, but trouble stirs when he’s selected to perform in a bullfight in Madrid. What is this splendid, pacifist bull to do?

Whatever happens, the achingly lovely illustrations shepherd this story into our hearts. That’s why this elegant book has been a classic since it was originally published in the 1930s.
