*Foundry Family Children's Library Selection*
A classic! Published in 1936 (and banned in Nazi Germany for its message of civil disobedience and nonviolent resistance) this is the beautiful tale of a pacifist bull whose preference for smelling flowers over locking horns makes (or breaks) his big debut in the bullring. We have deep personal sense memories of the exquisite, timeless illustrations. Mahatma Gandhi even called this his favorite book.
About the Foundry Family Children's Library: Curated by Heather, who came to our Foundry Family by way of iconic Minneapolis children's bookshop Wild Rumpus, the Foundry Family Children's Collection are the kinds of books that illuminate wonder, that tell deep human truths with gentle grace and good humor, and that move humans of all sizes with their simple, honest loveliness. We like to think of them as "new heirlooms", beautiful, timeless tales suitable for telling again and again (and again and again and again).
