Antonito lives an idyllic life on his parent’s bull farm in Andalucia, Spain. But the idyll is shattered when he realises that his beloved bull calf, Paco, is destined for the bloody struggle of the bullring. What can he do? He has a plan – a plan of such daring, it will take enormous courage to see it through.
But it is 1936, and the rolling drums of war are echoing across the Spanish plains. Little does Antonito realise the full consequences of his actions – and Paco has a destiny far exceeding Antonito’s dreams.

This amazing book is a written by a award winning author Michael Morpurgo. This book is about a boy and his grandpa and how they have such a tight bond. The boy’s grandpa tells him a story of his childhood and that sums up the main character of the book, Antonito. Antonito lives on a small village called Sauceda not very famous or important in most countries/cities but very famous and important to the people that inhabit that amazing village. The story is set in world war II times and funny enough I was learning about it when I was in year 4 . I have been planning to read your book about Robin Hood as I will be learning about it this term. I am so happy that during Antonito’s time of starvation he was taken care of because of his Uncle Juan!
