Description

Ivan is an easygoing gorilla. Living at the Exit 8 Big Top Mall and Video Arcade, he has grown accustomed to humans watching him through the glass walls of his domain. He rarely misses his life in the jungle. In fact, he hardly ever thinks about it at all.

Instead, Ivan thinks about TV shows he's seen and about his friends Stella, an elderly elephant, and Bob, a stray dog. But mostly Ivan thinks about art and how to capture the taste of a mango or the sound of leaves with color and a well-placed line.

Then he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from her family, and she makes Ivan see their home--and his own art--through new eyes. When Ruby arrives, change comes with her, and it's up to Ivan to make it a change for the better.

Katherine Applegate blends humor and poignancy to create Ivan's unforgettable first-person narration in a story of friendship, art, and hope.

The One and Only Ivan
By: Dion Muflia

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.
