The one and only Ivan
By Katherine Applegate

Wow! This book just blew me away. Like others I have known who have read this, it will leave you in tears. Sad tears and happy tears. This is such a beautiful and well written story that you cannot help but be moved. Ivan is a Silverback gorilla, caged for almost as long as he can remember. When a baby elephant arrives at his animal mall, it soon needs protecting. Ivan has to step up and he does. Powerful and simply one of the best books. A must read if ever there was one. Review to follow in the review pages. Thanks to Zac for sending me this copy. I need another box of tissues now!
