Description
(Winner of the 2013 Newbery Medal) Inspired by the real-life story of a western lowland gorilla who lived in a shopping mall cage for 27 years, Katherine Applegate gives readers 8 to 12 an unexpectedly beautiful tale of an easygoing gorilla, told by Ivan himself. Living at the Exit 8 Big Top Mall and Video Arcade, he has grown accustomed to humans watching him through the glass walls of his domain. Instead of the jungle, Ivan thinks about TV shows and about his friends Stella, an elderly elephant, and Bob, a stray dog. Mostly, Ivan thinks about painting, and how to express the taste of a mango or the sound of leaves. But when a baby elephant named Ruby arrives, she makes Ivan see their home—and his own art—through new eyes.

"Discover an animal hero that will take his place with other courageous and beloved animals such as Babe, Mrs. Frisby, Charlotte and Wilbur. Adults reading this aloud with children will find it just as rewarding."—ShelfAwareness.com
