There was a bull named Bernardo. Bernardo was mad at the red truck. Then Bernardo did not like to see red things. When Bernardo was eating grass he saw a red fire truck. He chased it to town. Bernardo smashed the truck, "WHAM" and "POUND." The hoses were all over town. Bernardo had some bumps. The doctor asked Bernardo's owner what happened. Bernardo's owner said my bull doesn't like red. What do you think is going to happen next?
I liked it when Bernardo the Bull chased all the red stuff because he was crazy about red. The book was funny and I also like the color red. It was exciting when Bernardo knocked the hoses everywhere.
If you are a funny type of story reader then you should read this book because the illustrations are very good.
