Once upon a time in Spain

cgqr le; igys dh ckr gSA

There was a little bull and his name was Ferdinand.

All the other little bulls he lived with would


run and jump and butt their heads together,

but not Ferdinand.

He liked to sit just quietly and smell the flowers.

He had a favorite spot out in the pasture under the cork


tree.

It was his favorite tree and he would sit in its


shade all day and smell the flowers.

Sometimes his mother, who was a cow, would worry about


him. She was afraid he would be lonesome all by himself.

Why dont you run and play with the other bulls and skip
and butt
Your head? she would say.
But Ferdinand would shake his head.
I like it better here where I can sit quietly and smell the
flowers.

His mother saw that he was not lonesome,


and because she was an understanding mother,
even though she was a cow, she let him just sit there and be
happy.

As the years went by Ferdinand grew and grew


until he was very big and strong.

All the other bulls
who had grown up
with him in the same
pasture would fight
each other all day.
They would butt
each other and stick
each other with their
horns. What they
wanted most of all
was to be picked to
fight at the bull
fights in Madrid.

But not Ferdinand - he still liked to sit just quietly


under the cork tree and smell the flowers.

One day five men came in very funny hats to pick the
biggest,
fastest, roughest bull to fight in the bull fights in Madrid.

All the other bulls ran around snorting and butting,


leaping and jumping so the men would think that they were
very
very strong and fierce and pick them.

Ferdinand knew that they wouldnt pick him and he didnt


care.
So he went out to his favorite cork tree to sit down.

He didnt look where he was sitting and instead of sitting


on the
nice cool grass in the shade he sat on a bumble bee.

Well, if were a bumble bee and a bull sat on you what


would you do?
You would sting him. And that is just what this bee did to
Ferdinand.

Wow! Did it hurt! Ferdinand jumped up with a snort.


He ran around puffing and snorting,
butting and pawing the ground as if he were crazy.

The five men saw him and they all shouted with joy.
Here was the largest and fiercest bull of all.
Just the one for the bull fights in Madrid.

They had a parade into the bull ring.

First came the Banderilleros with long sharp pins


with ribbons on them to stick in the bull and make him
mad.

Next came the Picadores who rode skinny horses


and they had long spears to stick in the bull and make him
madder.

Then came the Matadoe, the proudest of all he thought he was very handsome, and bowed to the ladies.
He had a red cape and a sword and was supposed to
stick the bull last of all.

They called him Ferdinand the Fierce and all the


Banderilleros
were afraid of him and the Picadores were afraid of him
and the Matadors were scared stiff.

Ferdinand ran to middle of the ring and everyone shouted


and
clapped because they thought he was going to fight fiercely
and butt and snort and stick his horns around.

But not Ferdinand.


When he got to middle of the ring he saw flowers in all the
lovely
ladies hair and he just sat down quietly and smelled.

He wouldnt fight
and be fierce no
matter what they did.
He just sat and
smelled. And the
Banderilleros were
mad and the
Picadors
were
madder
and
the
Matador was so mad
he cried
because he couldnt
show off his cape and
sword.

And for all I know he is sitting there still,


under his favorite cork tree,
smell the flowers just quietly.
He is very happy.
