the story of ferdinand
munro leaf's the story of ferdinand is really a monumental book, in my opinion...it's truly captivating with its moral and some say, political statement...if you haven't read it, it's a story about a bull who would rather sit quietly eating flowers and enjoying his day than fighting for a glorious bullfighting title...i find it actually profound...the illustrations of robert lawson are perfectly matched and glorious...he's a big inspiration to me with my own artwork and i find his illustrations in this book particularly wonderful.
