From the Publisher. 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.

This is one of my favorite childhood stories and one book that I will keep on the shelf long after my own children are grown. The depiction of this bull who preferred smelling flowers to fighting inspired my depiction of a gentle bull on my Taurus astrological pendant.
