In 4B we love to read. At the start of the term we began a class novel titled The One and Only Ivan, by Katherine Applegate.
About the book
Ivan is a gorilla who lives at the Exit 8 Big Top Mall and Video Arcade with his animal companions. While he is very used to this existence in his domain, he makes a change in his life and the lives of others, with the help of his friends. The One and Only Ivan is a work of fiction that is based on a true story.
