Description

Winner of the 2013 Newbery Medal and a #1 New York Times bestseller, this stirring and unforgettable novel from renowned author Katherine Applegate celebrates the transformative power of unexpected friendship. Inspired by the true story of a captive gorilla known as Ivan, this illustrated novel is told from the point of view of Ivan himself. Having spent 27 years behind the glass walls of his enclosure in a shopping mall, Ivan has grown accustomed to humans watching him. He hardly ever thinks about his life in the jungle. Instead, Ivan occupies himself with television, his friends Stella and Bob, and painting. But when he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from the wild, he is forced to see their home, and his art, through new eyes. The One and Only Ivan is a strong Common Core title that features these important strands and standards: first-person narrative; author's use of literary devices (personification, imagery); story elements (plot, character development, perspective). The English-language edition has sold over 1 million copies. Ivan es un poderoso pero tranquilo gorila espalda plateada. Vive en la salida 8 del centro comercial Gran Circo, alli se ha acostumbrado a los humanos que lo observen a traves de las paredes de cristal de su jaula. Rara vez echa de menos su vida en la selva. De hecho, casi nunca piensa en ello. Cuando conoce a Ruby, una bebe elefante que ha sido apartada de su familia, Ivan comienza a ver su hogar de una forma distinta. La inspiracion para esta novela reside en una historia real. Despues de ser capturado en edad infantil, Ivan fue criado en un hogar humano hasta que fue incorporado a una extrana coleccion de animales alojados en un centro comercial de tematica circense. Ivan paso 27 anos de su vida solo en una jaula, sin ver a ningun animal de su propia especie, antes de ser trasladado a un zoologico en 1994.
