Winner of the 2013 Newbery Medal and a #1 New York Times bestseller, this stirring and unforgettable novel from renowned author Katherine Applegate celebrates the transformative power of unexpected friendship. Inspired by the true story of a captive gorilla known as Ivan, this illustrated novel is told from the point of view of Ivan himself.

Having spent twenty-seven years behind the glass walls of his enclosure in a shopping mall, Ivan has grown accustomed to humans watching him. He hardly ever thinks about his life in the jungle. Instead, Ivan occupies himself with television, his friends Stella and Bob, and painting. But when he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from the wild, he is forced to see their home, and his art, through new eyes.

In the tradition of timeless stories like Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little, Katherine Applegate blends humor and poignancy to create an unforgettable story of friendship, art, and hope. This paperback edition includes an author's note highlighting the differences between the fictional story and true events, a version of the author's Newbery Medal acceptance speech, Ivan's "signature," discussion questions, and more.

The One and Only Ivan is a strong Common Core title that features these important strands and standards: first-person narrative- author's use of literary devices (personification, imagery)- story elements (plot, character development, perspective).

    I'm currently writing my dissertation on the ecclesiastical autonomy of the early churches and am focusing a chapter on Greco-Roman associations. This will be very helpful. Thank you!

      Hehe, sometimes I did have the impression that Tam and Phaelan were pretty much lookalikes anyway -dark hair, dark eyes, mischievous smile, perfect rogues both of them Р they could be brothers! I just thought how incredibly angry Tam would be if someone (preferably the outraged husband of one of Phaelan's affairs)mistook him for Phaelan.I'm so looking forward to these two arguing, bickering, making each other's life hell Й ????
