The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf, Scholastic paperback printing, TW338, 1964, unpaginated; approximately 60 pages. Illustrated by Robert Lawson.
DESCRIPTION:“All the bulls wanted to fight. But not Ferdinand. That was why so many funny things began to happen…” (from the back cover) Ferdinand was happy in his meadow, smelling the flowers, but because of his size and strength, some men decided that he should be in the bullfights. He was more interested in the matador’s boutonnière than in fighting!
