The Story of Ferdinand

Written by Munro Leaf and Illustrated by Robert Lawson

This is the story of Ferdinand, a bull who would rather smell the flowers than fight other bulls or fight in a bullfight in Madrid. When men from Madrid come looking for a young bull, Ferdinand is running around madly having just been stung by a bee. Thinking Ferdinand is a very aggressive bull they took him to Madrid, but they soon realized their mistake.
