I have loved Ferdinand, the flower admiring Bull, for 5 decades. Who wants to fight in the bull-ring anyway - it's much nicer sitting quietly under a cork tree and just sniffing the flowers.

Ferdinand didn't want to fight he just wanted to sit just quietly and smell the flowers. And no matter how many matadors, and picadors, and toreadors tried to make him fight, he wouldn't.

A delight. A 6 star book. I loved it when I was a little girl and saw Disney's cartoon (which I still watch from time to time). I love it now when I'm an old lady. I wish I could find Ferdinand's cork tree and sit there and smell the flowers.
