The One & Only Ivan Review

By: Monica Barrios

Book Summary :)

Ivan,a gorilla,lives in Exit Top 8 Big Top Mall.Mack,the manager of Exit Top 8 Big Top Mall,pushes the animals really hard so he can earn money (Stella The Elephant,Bob The Dog,and Ivan The Gorilla).Then finally Ruby,the baby elephant,came along.Ivan learned alot things from her,especially protecting each other. :)

My Opinion

I think "The One & Only Ivan" is one of the best books I have ever read.I really recommend the book.It is really good book for people that like animal stories.The thing that shocked me the most was that Ivan is a real gorilla living in the Atlanta Zoo,but sadly passed away,age of 50 year old.Katherine Applegate did a excellent job on the book.


THE ONE & ONLY IVAN HAS 4 AND A HALF STARS (on reviews)
