The Story of Ferdinand
By Munro Leaf, drawings by Robert Lawson
When Ferdinand, a big and strong bull who has a peaceable and gentle nature, is stung by a bumblebee and reacts by puffing, snorting and pawing the ground, people think he is a ferocious bull just right for the bull fights but soon learn they are mistaken.
