The spanish edition of a true classic with a timeless message! All the other bulls run, jump, and butt their heads together in fights. Ferdinand, on the other hand, would rather sit and smell the flowers. So what will happen when Ferdinand is picked for the bullfights in Madrid? The Story of Ferdinandhas inspired, enchanted, and provoked readers ever since it was first published in 1936 for its message of nonviolence and pacifism. In WWII times, Adolf Hitlerordered the book burned in Nazi Germany, whileJoseph Stalin, the leader of theSoviet Union, granted it privileged status as the only non-communist children's book allowed in Poland. The preeminent leader of Indian nationalism and civil rights, Mahatma Gandhi whose nonviolent and pacifistic practices went on to inspire Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. even called it his favorite book."
