Publisher Comments:

In 1983, beloved Caldecott-winning illustrator, Chris Van Allsburg, first invited readers to peer over the edge of a cliff to consider the wreck of a small sailboat. Had a churning sea carried the Zephyr up in a storm? Could waves ever have been so impossibly high? And what of the boy who had believedand#8212;dared to chase the windand#8212;no matter where it lead? Now, thirty years later, the winds have shifted once again and youand#8217;re invited back to the wreck of the Zephyr, to hear the story of the boy and his obsession to become the worldand#8217;s greatest sailor, and a storm that carried them to a place where boats sail on the wind, instead of on the water. Told in spare text and haunting, full-color pastels, Chris Van Allsburgand#8217;s spectral sailboats once again take impossbile flight. In illustrations so vivid one can feel the whisper of wind and hear the flutter of canvas, depart this world for another to entertain the marvelous possibility of dreams. This 30th anniversaryand#160;giftand#160;edition includes a bonus digital audio file to download, read by Chris Van Allsburg, and aand#160;stunning new jacket!

About the Author

Munro Leaf wrote a number of books for children, including The Story of Ferdinand and Wee Gillis, both illustrated by Robert Lawson. Because of his work's international appeal, Mr. Leaf and his wife were invited on three twenty-six-country tours under the auspices of the U.S. State Department, giving talks to children and to local educators and librarians. Mr. Leaf died in 1976.

Robert Lawson is the only person ever to receive both the Newbery and Caldecott Awards, for They Were Strong and Good and Rabbit Hill, respectively. Mr. Lawson died in 1957.

One of the first books I ever read. And one of the first books I ever read to my own children.
Ferdinand the Bull loves to sit and smell the flowers. He grows big and strong. One day the bullfighters come looking for the biggest, baddest bull they can find. All the other bulls run around showing off, while Ferdinance sits under a tree. Well, he tries to sit. The bumblebee stings his large heiney and he takes off roaring and snorting!
The bullfighters select him for the next bullfight. What will Ferdinand do? (Hint: Remember how much he loves flowers... And there's bound to be lots and lots there.)
