Staff Reviews

Ferdinand is big and strong. More importantly, he is gentle and kind and he is true to himself. This classic children’s book has as much to say today--to people of all ages--as it did in 1936.

— Stephanie


A true classic, this tale of a sweet, gentle bull named Ferdinand has enchanted readers, young and old alike, since it was first published by Viking Press in 1936. All the other bulls would run and jump and butt their heads together. But Ferdinand would rather sit and smell the flowers than fight. And his pacifist tendencies remain intact even when he is picked for the bullfights in Madrid. With the original black-and-white drawings enhanced by subtle watercolor washes in full-color, plus the complete original text, this 8 x 8 edition will introduce lovable Ferdinand to a whole new audience.
