The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
The One and Only Ivan

Julie Tibbetts, January 13, 2013

I picked up The One and Only Ivan and never put it down until I was finished. Ivan is a gorilla living in a strip mall and is part of the entertainment for the mall's shoppers. As strange as this might seem...the story was insprired from a real life gorilla who was living in a strip mall in Tacoma, Washington. Ivan narrates the story and opens up the world of the captive animal to the reader. The story really deals with so many issues...friendship, kindness, sorrow, triump, and love. I came away with a new perspective of what cruelties we humans subject on the beautiful animals of the worid and how freindship, commintment, and love are so important to us all. Trust will love this book!
