The One and Only Ivan is a heart-warming story about a gorilla who is an artist inside. One day, a baby elephant named Ruby comes to the zoo where Ivan is, and Ivan promises his other elephant friend, Stella, that he will keep Ruby safe. The One and Only Ivan is told from the perspective of Ivan the gorilla, so even though he and his animal friends don’t talk in the book, he talks to the reader. This is such a sweet book and I definitely recommend this book for you if you are an animal fan.   This book is based on a true story, and the real Ivan still lives today and is painting pictures like in the book.
