The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
"The One and Only Ivan," is about a Gorilla that does so much to help and get his friends to a zoo and stop getting almost beaten by a claw stick. I extremely liked this book, truthfully it made me cry. One of Ivan, the Gorilla's, friends dies he does everything to make the other new Elephant named Ruby get to the zoo to have a better life with no beating. I would recommend this book to people who like animals and want to see how it is living in a cage, or if you just want to try something new.
