The one and only ivan by Katherine Applegate

Posted on Updated on

A story of courage, friendship and an unlikely animal hero …..


I am Ivan.  I am a Gorilla.  I’ve learned not to get my hopes up.

Ivan has lived in a cage in a shopping mall for most of his life.  He rarely misses the jungle.  In fact, he hardly ever thinks about it.  Then he meets Ruby, a baby elephant, who opens his eyes and shows him that there might be another way to live ….

Inspired by the true story of an unforgettable gorilla.
