He was an odd bull; instead of playing and butting heads like all of the other bulls, he prefers to lounge under his favorite tree in the shade smelling the flowers. One day some men came to find the fiercest bull for a bull fight. All of the bulls were showing off butting and jumping, but not Ferdinand--that is, until Ferdinand gets stung by a bee. What will happen when the men take Ferdinand to the fight? Hardcover with dust jacket.
