The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate – Our Review
I was very excited to see on TV last night that this amazing book has been made into a movie! I read this book to a class of Year 4 students and together we learned to love and understand the quirky characters at Exit 8 Big Top Mall.
This novel explores the life of Ivan, a silverback gorilla who lives in a shopping ball along with his friends Stella, an elderly elephant, and Bob, a stray dog. Touching on topics of animal captivity and cruelty, this book is sure to have readers questioning what is right and wrong in this world.
