2013 Newbery Medal Winner
Title: The One and Only Ivan
By: Katherine Applegate
I read this book because it is the Newbery Medal winner this year and I was not disappointed! Ivan is a gorilla who lives in a mall/video arcade. This is Ivan’s story of his life and relationships with the other animals and humans at the mall. Sounds hokey, but it is a lovely story of friendships that go beyond species prejudice. It is also Ivan’s story of finding his mojo, becoming a wise leader and sharing his love for the underdog.
This is a quick read that will stay with you long after you put the book down. A children’s book for all ages.
