A true classic with a timeless message! 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? The Story of Ferdinand 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. 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. The story was adapted by Walt Disney into a short animated film entitled Ferdinand the Bull in 1938. Ferdinand the Bull won the 1938 Academy Award for Best Short Subject (Cartoons).

Here, in the tradition of Winnie Ille Pu, is a familiar and beloved children's classic reimagined as a primer for the hic, haec, hoc set. Olim in Hispania erat taurulus nomine Ferdinandus. This, as any young scholar of Latin could tell you, is how the opening words of Ferdinand the Bull might have sounded had their author been born in ancient Rome. The masterly translation is by Elizabeth Hadas, late of the Spence School in New York City, who also contributes a Latin-English glossary (cork tree = quercus corticea; bumblebee = apis bombitans). And of course the book reproduces all of Robert Lawson's original illustrations, which remain as brilliant, sunny, and droll as they were when The Story of Ferdinand was first published, in 1936.

After a major invasion of the Gaza Strip in late 2008, twenty-year-old Mahmoud Barghout decided to become a zookeeper. He saw that the children around him were exhausted by war, and so to provide respite, he set up the Happy Land Zoo. But the war made feeding and caring for the animals impossible—they died of thirst, hunger, or injury—and replacing them meant finding large sums of money and overcoming the blockade or the risk of bringing them in through tunnels connecting the Strip to Egypt. So Mr. Barghout came up with a solution for at least one animal: he dyed two local white donkeys with dark stripes, to create zebras, which visiting children could touch and even ride. The Story of Hurry recounts the tale of these “made in Gaza” zebras, of an inventive zookeeper just like Mr. Barghout, and of the wondrous capacity of the imagination of children. Written by Emma Williams, together with thought-provoking mixed-media illustrations by Ibrahim Quraishi, this picture book for inquisitive children aged 3 to 103 includes an historical note for parents, teachers, and librarians. From the Hardcover edition.

A classic Arthur Adventure- now on CD! What makes a story entertaining? That's the question Arthur asks himself when Mr. Ratburn gives a creative writing assignment to his class. When D.W. yawns through Arthur's first story, he worries that his tale isn't exciting enough. Is the setting too humdrum? Maybe he needs to research his subject more thoroughly. Or perhaps humor is the key to creating a lively tale! With every new angle, Arthur's story takes one more hilarious step further away from his original idea - but is the end result really the tale he wants to tell? Kids will love listening along as Marc Brown reads this classic Arthur story.
