Gordon the Goat book. Munro Leaf, author and illustrator of dozens of children’s books, is best remembered for his signature character, Ferdinand, the Spanish bull who preferred smelling flowers to fighting in a ring in Spain. Gordon the goat didn't care much what he did or why he did it until. Composed in less than an hour one Sunday afternoon in 1935, the book sparked controversy.

Wilbur Monroe Leaf (. Munro Leaf) (December 4, 1905 – December 21, 1976) was an American author of children's literature who wrote and illustrated nearly 40 books during his 40-year career. He is best known for The Story of Ferdinand (1936), a children's classic which he wrote on a yellow legal-length pad in less than an hour. Labeled as subversive, it stirred an international controversy.

Not one of Munro Leaf's major items, but on his name it will have a wide market. Munro Leaf has that rare ability to preach a sermon without making it obvious, ha his little moral tales are really funny. It is a story - in primer form - of a Texas gat who learned to think and act for himself. e'd always followed his leader until the twister came along, and then he learned, through violent means, that it might be better to stop and think for himself.

I read Gordon the Goat when I was 5 years old. Reading it shaped my understanding of individuality, learning from my own mistakes and from others' successes and failures. I was OVERJOYED to find it available, and my wife is reading it to her kindergarden class!
It SHOULD be REQUIRED reading for kindergarden and 1st grade children so they find their own sense of responsibility. It's a marvelous example.

I read this book 50 years ago and still remember the lessons from Gordon's discovery, don't just follow the crowd.

My opinions reflect the other reviewers. I would disagree with the reading level suggested by Amazon (age 9-12) for two reasons. One, the text is fairly simple. Second, the lessons of the book are better learned early. It's the kind of logic a child needs to arm him or herself with before the slings and arrows of (pre-)adolescence start flying. I believe I read this book at 4 or 5, and would recommend it for younger, precocious readers.

I wish I could post my scans of the cover, but Amazon will not let you post unless you buy something...very silly idea.

I completly agree with "a reader" who loved this book as a child. I purchased this book in second grade through a book club and 30 years later can still remember the story and illustrations vividly. I even colored in the pictures in my copy and had it with me up through college until it was lost during a move. The message of this story -- don't follow the crowd -- sticks with me even today. This book NEEDS to be back in print. Until then, I'll search for a used copy for my kids.
