I remember having (and loving!) this book as a kid. Ferdinando el toro! Ferdinando was different than all other of his young bull friends. He had absolutely no interest in being picked out to go to the bullfighting arena and become a great star. Oh, no!

Well, you can watch the end of this wonderful story in the disney version on YouTUBE.
A delightful story by Munro Leaf
Wonderfully illustrated by Robert Lawson
