The One and Only Ivan – K.A. Applegate

one_and_only_ivan_imageGreat book! Written by one of my favourite authors, it would appeal to children AND adults. Chapters are short, as Ivan, the caged gorilla living in a highway-exit-arcade-tourist-attraction, makes observations about his world. Ivan is a gorilla of few words but he is quite profound and indeed comical. Children will read this story because of the book’s setting, but adults will enjoy the deeper levels. The author has given voice to a true story of a
gorilla in captivity that eventually is given a new life in a wildlife zoo. Well written!  And also available as an ebook(submitted by SMC)
