The Story of Ferdinand

Item Details

A true classic with a timeless message, The Story of Ferdinand has enchanted readers since it was first published in 1936. All the other bulls would run and jump and butt their heads together. But Ferdinand would rather sit and smell the flowers. And he does just that, until the day a bumblebee and some men from the Madrid bullfights give gentle Ferdinand a chance to be the most ferocious star of the corrida -and the most unexpected comic hero. This cherished hardcover is perfect for those who love Ferdinand, and those who have yet to meet him.

One of the greatest stories of this genre. The illustrations are very funny and very sweet and the story is one we all can (or want to) relate to.

A marvelous and timeless story. It clearly exemplifies that it's okay to be who you are. One doesn't have to comply to "fit in" and be loved.

A favourite for sure. I love the sweet story and the wonderful ending. The illustrations are black and white but that doesn't hold back their power to move. Definitely a five star book.
