Ferdinand is the world's most peaceful--and--beloved little bull. While all of the other bulls snort, leap, and butt their heads, Ferdinand is content to just sit and smell the flowers under his favorite cork tree. Leaf's simple storytelling paired with Lawson's pen-and-ink drawings make The Story of Ferdinand a true classic. Commemorate the 75th anniversary of the book's original publication with this beautiful and affordable 8x8 paperback edition.
Reviews all around the world
One of my biggest joys - during the seven years I spent babysitting our grandsons - was sharing reading time with them. My daughter-in-law became a full-time-mom a year and a half ago so my opportunities to do it are now limited to visits and the occasional sleepover, but it doesn't mean we can't still contribute to the growing children's library in their own home! Having purchased a nice children's book case for them last Christmas, it's our intention to fill it with time-honored classics. I found "The Story of Ferdinand" among Amazon's list of "100 Children's Books to Read in a Lifetime", and am ashamed to say I had never heard of this book that's been around for 80 years now and was the #1 book in America - topping Gone with the Wind! - the year it was first published (1936).
