The One and Only Ivan

Written by Katherine Applegate

Written by Patricia Castelao

Published by HarperCollins; Reprint edition (January 6, 2015)


Ivan is a gorilla who is living opposite of the glass wall in the mall. Ivan doesn’t really remember how his life was before in the jungle.

This book based on a true story of gorilla Ivan was written in perspective of Ivan. I thought it was very interesting to read a book that seems like it was written by an animal rather than a human. This story is such a beautiful and sad story that shows the tragedy of human’s selfishness. This book brought me to tears, because I was so sad for Ivan’s life and what he went through. This book was #1 New York Times bestseller, and it is great book for middle age young readers. This book is very meaningful work, and I think children must read this literacy work.
