The Story of Ferdinand

Munro Leaf Robert Lawson

About the book

Once upon a time in Spain, there was a little bull and his name was Ferdinand . . .

Unlike all the other little bulls – who run, jump, and butt their heads together in fights – Ferdinand would rather sit under his favourite cork tree and smell the flowers. So what will happen when Ferdinand is picked for the bull fights in Madrid?

Beloved all over the world for its timeless message of peace, tolerance and the courage to be yourself, this truly classic story has never been out of print in the US since its release in 1936. Hitherto unpublished in the UK and now a major motion picture.
