Ivan: The Remarkable True Story of the Shopping Mall Gorilla
In this evocative, accessible picture book, illustrated by G. Brian Karas, Katherine Applegate tells the true story of the gorilla who inspired her Newbery-winning novel The One and Only Ivan. The real Ivan, known as the Shopping Mall Gorilla, lived alone in a small cage for almost thirty years before he was finally relocated to the gorilla habitat at ZooAtlanta. Back matter includes photographs of Ivan.
