    The book, The One and Only Ivan, is an emotional, inspirational and a humorous book that you will want to read again and again. The characters demonstrate friendship, protection, care and loyalty because they need each other to survive their lonely life locked in the Big Top Mall. There were unexpected twists and turns, so our class wanted to keep reading to find out what happened to these beloved animals. Ivan is truly one of a kind, and the fact that there really was a silverback gorilla named Ivan that lived a sad and lonely life, makes this book so interesting and unforgettable. Read this book to find out Ivan's journey and what happened to his friends, Stella, Ruby, Bob, and Julia. This book was a mighty success!

    This book was a nice example of friendship and kindness. Ivan is a real gorilla, and this book focuses on friendships and how to treat animals. We feel the story is life changing because of how Ivan was locked up in a small cage with a painted jungle for 27 long years. With the help of the animals and Julia all working together, Ivan and Ruby's life changes and gets better. Bob is a tough little dog, but he also needs friends, too. The characters show determination and loyalty to help each other until the end. We loved this book, and we will always remember Ivan, the One and Only Mighty Silverback. He's the coolest gorilla ever!

    This book keeps you on the edge of your seat because there are a lot of ups and downs like Stella dying but then Ruby coming to the mall and Ivan protecting her. It was hard to believe that humans made a terrible decision to keep animals locked and trapped in a small cage at a mall for 27 years. When they finally got out, it was a huge success for Ivan, Julia and Ruby. They worked together as a team for a great cause. This book represents friendship and compassion to do what is right, to honor promises, and to take care of each other until the end. Our class loved this book tons and tons! We will never forget Ivan, our mighty silverback!
