<b>A true classic with a timeless message!</b><br /> <br />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?<br /> <br /><i>The Story of Ferdinand</i> has inspired, enchanted, and provoked readers ever since it was first published in 1936 for its message of nonviolence and pacifism. In WWII times, Adolf Hitler ordered the book burned in Nazi Germany, while Joseph Stalin, the leader of the Soviet Union, granted it privileged status as the only non-communist children's book allowed in Poland.<br /> <br />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.<br /> <br />The story was adapted by Walt Disney into a short animated film entitled <i>Ferdinand the Bull</i> in 1938. <i>Ferdinand the Bull</i> won the 1938 Academy Award for Best Short Subject (Cartoons).

<p><strong>Winner of the Newbery Medal and a #1 </strong><em><strong>New York Times</strong></em><strong> bestseller!</strong></p><p>This stirring and unforgettable novel from renowned author Katherine Applegate celebrates the transformative power of unexpected friendships. Inspired by the true story of a captive gorilla known as Ivan, this illustrated novel is told from the point-of-view of Ivan himself. </p><p>Having spent 27 years behind the glass walls of his enclosure in a shopping mall, Ivan has grown accustomed to humans watching him. He hardly ever thinks about his life in the jungle. Instead, Ivan occupies himself with television, his friends Stella and Bob, and painting. But when he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from the wild, he is forced to see their home, and his art, through new eyes.</p><p><em>The One and Only Ivan</em> was hailed as a best book of the year by <em>Kirkus</em>, <em>School Library Journal</em>, and Amazon, demonstrating it is a true classic in the making. In the tradition of timeless stories like <em>Charlotte's Web</em> and <em>Stuart Little</em>, Katherine Applegate blends humor and poignancy to create Ivan's unforgettable first-person narration in a story of friendship, art, and hope. An author's note depicts the differences between the fictional story and true events.</p>
