Title: The One and Only Ivan

Author: Katherine Applegate

Genre: Fiction

Rating: 4 Stars

 The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate is a touching book that pulls you into the story as if it was a movie playing in your head.  A silverback gorilla named Ivan lives in a mall circus. He performs in the circus every day with an elephant named Stella. Stella had a rough past and walks with two hurt feet from having been chained during an earlier captivity.  When a new elephant named Ruby arrives with playful energy and strong emotions like fear and love, Ivan and Stella begin to see their caged life in a whole new light.  If you love animals and deep stories of friendship and sacrifice this would be a good story for you.
