Ferdinand The Bull

Children are transported to Ferdinand’s meadow in Spain – a beautiful spot presided over by the “cork” tree who serves as our touchstone throughout the story; we meet Ferdinand, a young bull who likes to make up stories and imagine things, who enjoys nature and a peaceful afternoon smelling the flowers. A bull who does not wish to fight. Added to this adaptation is the character of Sammy, a young cow who dreams of traveling to Madrid to participate in the bullfights, even though she is a girl. We watch as Ferdinand’s mother struggles between her love for her son and her desire that he fit in. And finally, after his fateful encounter with the bee, we travel with Ferdinand to the bullfights in beautiful Madrid where PoPo the Picador and BamBam the Bandelliero learn that not all bulls fight! In the end, Ferdinand journeys home having stayed true to his nature and rejoins his meadow, his flowers, and his dear friends Sammy and the tree.
