THE ONE AND ONLY IVAN by Katherine Applegate

April 13, 2018

What has a wingspan of almost 9 feet, stands between 6-7 feet, and is 6 times stronger than a man?

It's Ivan the Gorilla.  Ivan is a gorilla that has been in captivity his entire life.  Ivan lived at The Big Top Mall in a cage that was only 40 feet by 40 feet.  People would come to see him and his friend Elle, the elephant along with other interesting creatures.  Ivan is one very special gorilla that lived to be 50 years old.

We are so enjoying our novel, The One and Only Ivan, by Kristina Applegate.  If you want to read a great, heartwarming book, then this book is for you.
