          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!

                      As a sequel to the well-known The One and Only Ivan, The One and Only Bob by Katherine Applegate is a witty, sweet story told from the eyes of the friendly, comical yet hilariously critical mutt, Bob and his enter into the the spoiled world of the humans. He enjoys his new family and new luxuries and loves seeing his friends, Ivan the gorilla and Ruby the elephant, happy at the zoo. But Bob faces things more like his old days as a street dog when a hurricane hits the city and the zoo is flooded and full of destruction. Little, courageous Bob must find a way to save his friends...and himself from the storm and the wild animals free and on the loose from the zoo. This is a great book and I would recommend it to anyone!
