The story of Ferdinand, written by Monroe Leaf with drawings by Robert Lawson, was first published in 1936, for readers of all ages. The story takes place in Spain. It is the story of a young bull in Spain who prefers sitting quietly under his favorite cork tree and smelling the flowers to running, jumping, and butting his head with the other little bulls. Naturally, his mother worried about him because he would sit alone. Two years passed, and he grew to be big and strong. When all the other bulls hoped to be picked to fight in the bullfights in Madrid, Ferdinand still preferred to sit quietly under his favorite tree. Then, one day, five men came to choose the roughest bowl for the bullfights. Ferdinand didn't care as he knew they wouldn't pick him, but just as he was about to sit down, he sat on a bumblebee, which stung him and caused him to jump and snort And act as if he was crazy. The five men believe they found the largest and fiercest bull, in Ferdinand. When the big day came for him to fight in the bullfights and Madrid, he saw all the flowers in the lady's hair and just sat down and smelled them; he refused to fight and be fierce, which made the Banderilleros and the Picador very mad, and the Matador even madder. So they were forced to take him back home, where he would be able to sit under his favorite tree and be very happy.… (plus d'informations)

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.

Classic book, about bull which likes to smell flowers and not fight. First published in 1936 and was banned by Hitler, as it supported pacifist's tendencies.
