The one and only Ivan by Katherine Applegate is one of my all-time favourite books ever. It is also one of the top books for my year six school book club students.

I also used to work in a children’s bookshop part time and I would sell so many copies of the book quoting my favourite line to everyone.
“Humans waste words. They toss them like banana peels and leave them to rot.”

I love this trailer made by students led by middle school librarian Teresa DeLuca at Furnace Brook Middle School.

You can tell that the book has been well-read and much loved by the students with all the time and work that has gone in to their trailer. They have made the story accessible to everyone. Thank you for letting me share it here. You should feel very proud of this trailer.

Sit back, watch and enjoy. And if you haven’t read the book yet, then this trailer will certainly inspire you to go and find a copy.
