The One and Only Ivan, Paperback Book

Description

Winner of the Newbery Medal 2013Inspired by a true story, this is the beautifully written tale of how a mighty gorilla wins his freedom.

A winning blend of humour and poignancy that will appeal to fans of Michael Morpurgo. Ivan is an easy-going gorilla who has spent his life performing for the crowds at the Exit 8 shopping mall.

He rarely misses life in the jungle. In fact, he hardly thinks about it at all. But everything changes when a baby elephant called Ruby arrives and Ivan realises he must find a new life for them both.

Told from Ivan's perspective this is a stand-out novel with a pertinent message for readers of 9+.
