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

Miz Houghton, January 1, 2013

Hands down the best book of 2012. Written in verse from the perspective of Ivan, a gorilla who has been captive for his whole life without ever seeing another gorilla. Based on Ivan, the gorilla who lived in a Tacoma mall for many years, this book is just touching enough without being saccharine.
