Product description

From the Inside Flap

Ivan is an easygoing gorilla. Living in a shopping mall, 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, his friends Stella and Bob, and painting.

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.

About the Author

Katherine Applegate's many books include the Roscoe Riley Rules chapter book series, the picture book The Buffalo Storm, and the award-winning novel Home of the Brave. With her husband, Michael Grant, she wrote the hugely popular series Animorphs, which has sold more than 35 million copies worldwide.

Katherine was inspired to write The One and Only Ivan after reading about the true story of a captive gorilla known as Ivan, the Shopping Mall Gorilla. The real Ivan lived alone in a tiny cage for twenty-seven years at a shopping mall before being moved to Zoo Atlanta after a public outcry. He was a beloved celebrity at the zoo, which houses the nation's largest collection of western lowland gorillas. Ivan was well known for his paintings, which he "signed" with a thumbprint.

Katherine lives in California with her husband and two children.

5.0 out of 5 stars No animal deserves to be held captive
By Dev on 14 September 2021
The One and Only Ivan presents a great story to read. Author has described every character in great detail and since characters were animals that were kept in a domain, I could feel as if I was in the same domain as Ivan, the hero of our story. Though in most part of the story Ivan was in his confines but if you read the book with interest you can see the story progressing. The story overall looks very plain kind of unexciting but on the other hand since Ivan possesses a completely different view of everything including humans this makes the story interesting. At places the story is somewhat confusing and makes it difficult to understand but on the other places the story is filled with emotions of joy, grief and funny too. The story delivers a great message that no animal deserves to be held captive and also the story ends with the happiest and the most heartwarming ending. I would like to thank Kathrine Applegate for writing such an amazing story.
