Have you ever felt lonely? Like your never going to get a friend and never see the outside view because your stuck in a stupid store lonely? That's how I van felt … all those people watching him from the glass window really got boring… He's never ever thought about escaping and running away back home to his family in the jungle.Nope! He's been in that store for over 25 years!! Instead of escaping he just watches the TV (like any other kid would do) when bored to death. Nothing was ever interesting. Until Ruby came alone. Ruby is a baby elephant, also from the jungle! Will this baby elephant open up the eyes of Ivan and show him what the true meaning of living is?... I've read this book many times and it always brohgt me to tears. Its heartwarming and emotional. This Book will surely make someone cry. Thank You Katherine Applegate for bringing this amazing story!
