Staff Reviews

This book is ridiculously sweet. It challenges the ideas of traditional masculinity by telling the story of a bull who is more interested in flowers than fighting. I cannot recommend this book enough as it teaches a crucial lesson for our modern day: be you.

Soon to be a major motion picture!

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.
