The One and Only Ivan

The One and Only Ivan - Patricia Castelao, Katherine Applegate As a reading book for children it was wordy (in very short if not one liner paragraphs) and sparse in pictures but it allows the imagination to soar.

I would have preferred less cynicism about humans and more drawings of Ivan and Ruby, the baby elephant but this is a moving tale, nonetheless, based on a TRUE story, as they say in the movies.
