An old favourite with a timeless message. The Story of Ferdinand was first published in 1936. As an adult it is wonderful to reread a book, which has a story and illustrations that do not disappoint in the present. Once upon a time in Spain, there was a little bull whose name was Ferdinand who preferred to sit quietly and smell the flowers which perhaps does not prepare a bull for bull fighting! The illustrations by Robert Lawson clearly show the city of Ronda, famous as the oldest bullfighting ring in Spain.
