The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
My name is Slader. My favorite things to do is to play baseball, and watch my favorite movies. I am a 12 year old and in 7th grade.
The One And Only Ivan is a book by Katherine Applegate. In this book, Ivan is a silver back gorilla. Ivan lives in a circus. He is very friendly. His best friend’s name is Stella, who is an elephant. The One And Only Ivan is a very interesting book. It is full of emotion, there are happy parts, and sad parts. I definitely recommend this book if you really like animals. This book is mostly animals. My favorite character is Bob, who is a stray dog, who is also Ivan’s best friend. A new animal is forced to live in the circus, and that’s where the real problem begins.
The One and Only Ivan is easy and decently long with 336 pages. To me, the book got a little confusing at some parts as there were some words I didn’t know, not too much though. Every page is super interesting to read. It never really gets boring. The genre of this book is fiction. I recommend this book if you are in 6th to 8th grade. The One and Only Ivan won the John Newbery Medal, “the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children”.
I could not stop reading this book. This novel is definitely one of my favorite books I’ve ever read. I have read this book twice and enjoyed it both times. I think you will enjoy it too. Thank you for reading my review.
