I tried to read this as part of the Newbery Challenge, but I couldn't get beyond all the descriptions of how glorious it was to kill a bull, and how the injury or death of horses used during bull fights was necessary.

It's a bit slow, but there is great atmosphere and in the end a wonderful connection between bull fighting and courage. ( )

This book carries a strong message to children about growing up and finding their calling. It demonstrates how to face fears while portraying life and death in a somewhat complex manner. ( )

I came to appreciate this book for various reasons. The main idea of “Shadow of a Bull” is to share the character development of a boy named Manolo Oliver, who does not want to become a famous Spain bullfighter like his father. I liked this book because it expands readers cultural worldview. The book's setting and culture is placed in Spain, revolving around the morals and traditions of the country. It would be great for children to read books that are set in countries outside of the United States to help them realize that kids all around the world have the same heartaches but in different ways. As the book says, Monolo's struggles go “beyond the world of the bullfighters and the borders of Spain. They are the struggles of every boy in the process of becoming a man.” I also appreciate this book because of the character development. Monolo struggles to retain his pride, his self-respect, and his own dreams and independence. The book follows the development of a boy who feels pressured to do what society feels is best for him, but at the end, Monolo realizes that he wants to follow his own dreams, which is becoming a doctor.

Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D. (Children's Literature)
This reissue of the 1965 Newbery Award Book features an appealing cover showing a bull just as he passes the torero in the ring. A glossary of bullfighting terms appears in the back. The classic story of coming of age features Manolo Olivar and his struggle to overcome the expectations of everyone in his village and choose his own destiny. Manolo’s father, one of the greatest tereros of all time, died in the ring when Manolo was only three years old and Manolo is expected to follow in his famous footsteps. When Manolo reaches his ninth birthday, six men in the town begin his training. They take him to bullfights and explain the moves. They are especially enamored with the honor exhibited in the sport. Manolo practices secretly, but he knows he has no desire to kill bulls. He would rather be a doctor. Manolo must make his stand and declare his intention when he is eleven years old. Young readers will identify with Manolo’s soul searching struggle to claim his own identity, The many details of bullfighting may seem strange to readers unfamiliar with this sport, causing some to lose interest. Reading the book aloud in a classroom setting or by a parent with a child could provide opportunities for worthwhile discussions. 2007 (orig. 1965), Aladdin Paperbacks/Simon & Schuster, $5.99. Ages 9 to 14.
