Ivan, a silver back gorilla, remembers growing up in the wild before being captured into the circus. Only knowing the 4 gray walls of the mall, he makes friends with the animals around him. Then a new baby elephant arrives and Ivan promises to get her safely to the zoo. This book follows through the friendships and hope around the animals in the circus. I would use this book as a read aloud for the students. It is a longer book, but the students would enjoy it, and I would use it as a conversation piece for the ethical treatment of animals. It would probably be intended for the lower middle grades, about 4th-5th grade. ( )

this is such a beautiful, sad, hopeful little book. (it doesn't seem little as it's relatively thick, but there aren't that many words on each page.) it's full of tragedy but also friendship and love, much like life. i cried many times reading it, and am especially sad to know it was based on a true story. the things people do to animals.

this is a nuanced story, though, which i'm glad to see. mack treats the animals badly, but i think he really cares about them. he would like to take better care of them but doesn't have the means. (mostly. he still does train with pain and the claw-stick.) but he's not just an evil guy. i like when it's not so black and white, especially in middle grade books.

this reminds me of charlotte's web quite a bit. maybe because i just read it recently, but the idea of different species taking care of each other, of a human girl standing up to try to save one of them, and the animal coming to the rescue of the new young animal in their midst, by creating something with a word. this had more art in it, which was really great, and apparently true. another similarity is the death of one of the main characters. i didn't think this would be a happy story, but i was surprised in the middle when stella died. i hadn't expected that so soon in the story. i also liked how much more of a part the humans played in this story than in charlotte's web, as fern kind of fell out of the story in that one. julia has a much bigger role here, and i liked that. i think it's important for kids to read about other kids who make a difference.

it's also sad that the happy ending in the book and in real life was that these animals ended up in a zoo. applegate is sure to note that some zoos are good to animals, but doesn't claim they all are, which i appreciate. i'm sure it is true that ivan needed to stay in a zoo and be taken care of; he wouldn't have survived in the wild. i just don't like to think of zoos as most animals' happy place.

Ivan has spent 27 years behind glass of his enclosure in a shopping mall. He has become used to humans watching him. He barely ever thinks about his life in the jungle. When he meets Ruby, a baby elephant who was taken from the wild, he is forced to see their "home" in a different perspective. I think that this book is a great read for students in middle school. I think it would be a great book to read in a ELAR class in a book club. ( )

The end of the book holds a brief explanation of how the story is based on real life, telling some of the parts where fact separates from fiction. It’s more interesting, knowing that it was based on reality, but my issue throughout the book was that the story was told in first person, with Ivan making all sorts of observations on the human condition, how we talk too much and what we do well or not so well, from a gorilla’s point of view. It came off as some kind of moralizing commentary from the author, and seemed less appropriate knowing that the story was based in reality.
In general, the story was ok, there was some humor, and the friendships between the animals was sweet and somewhat charming, but I’m just not quite seeing what everyone is so taken with. ( )

My daughter made me read this. Not made. Suggested. Didn't take long as it's very short. It's a wonderful book. Really quite sad, but ultimately uplifting. I wasn't too sure 1st person was the best format when the narrator is a gorilla, but the author made it work. I teared up a little in spite of my best efforts. ( )
