Ferdinand the engine has a lot to learn about being an engine and keeping to the rails - he has a lot to learn about just doing what he is told. But it's a good job the Inventor knows exactly what Ferdinand is like and then there's the wonderful engine Morning Star who will help Ferdinand when he is in trouble.
Ann Benton's delightful book portrays characters such as Ferdinand, Sunny Jim, Morning Star, and the inventor in a way that children can be taught profound truths in a simple way. Ferdinand's story is a wonderful way to portray the problem we humans have with sin and the wonderful saviour we have in the Lord Jesus Christ.
