I’m sitting here in the school library with tears streaming down my face. One of the most powerful books I have read this year was about The one and only Ivan by K Applegate. Based on truth the story of Ivan is just lovely. What an amazing creature.
Ivan was 50 and apparently still painting pictures.

A reminder of the book. The language and story are beautiful.
