This heartwarming children's novel tells the story of Ivan, a silverback gorilla who has spent 27 years in captivity at a mall, living a life confined to a cage. Ivan is an introspective and artistic gorilla, spending his days painting and watching the world around him with a sense of detachment and quiet acceptance. Ivan shares his space with other animals, including Stella, an elderly elephant, and Bob, a stray dog who often sneaks in to keep him company. Despite his confined existence, Ivan harbors a deep-seated optimism and a longing for something more. His perspective shifts dramatically when Ruby, a young and inquisitive elephant, joins the mall. Ruby's presence reignites a sense of purpose in Ivan, compelling him to take action to secure a better future for her. This novel is celebrated for its profound themes of friendship, hope, and the quest for freedom. It has received widespread acclaim, including the prestigious Newbery Medal for its contribution to children's literature. Overall, I loved reading this book. You should read it too!

Bob is in the safe, loving care of Julia and her family. While he has a comfy bed to sleep on, Bob isn't a huge fan of this domesticated life. Is he losing his toughness? But then a horrible hurricane and tornado comes crashing in. Bob is stranded from Julia, and Ivan....well, Ivan hasn't been found yet. All of the sudden, there's that scent. The scent Bob remembered as a pup. The smell of his sister that he thought was dead. The smell of Boss. Venturing to find Boss, Bob learns the lessons of friendship, family, and forgiveness. Happy reading!
