One and Only Ivan - Katherine Applegate
Inspired 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. This #1 New York Times bestselling and Newbery Award-winning novel is coming to the big screen this summer, with a star-studded cast including Sam Rockwell, Angelina Jolie, Danny DeVito, Helen Mirren, Bryan Cranston, and more! 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, ideal for readers of 9+.
