This is a children book based on a true story told from perspective of Ivan, a silverback gorilla living in Big Top Mall. Although he lived in a cage, Ivan was pretty content with his days until Ruby, a baby elephant, came to be his new neighbor. Ivan realised that Ruby didn't deserved to live in a cage...and so did he.
The One and Only Ivan was written in short chapters and paragraphs, easy to read and to understand. It was honest, sometimes hilarious, but also tragic and reminding us to be kind to animals.
