This has been my favourite since I was a child. Reading it now brings back so many food memories. The story of Ferdinand is simple, uncomplicated and to the point even in today's day and age. A timeless message!
A lesson in tolerance and letting people be themselves. And the illustrations are equally breathtaking. Every page is a work of art, worthy of adorning any wall. Highly recommend it for adults and kids alike.
Simple story but strong message. I don't know how much of the message my daughter understands (at 2 and a half years), but, i know, some day she will, since she makes us read this book to her every other day.
