  1. I have read this book numerous times and each time it is better than the last. It is a book that can be enjoyed by kids, teens and adults. This extraordinary children's novel, which recently won a well-earned Newbery, wraps the reader in the voice of Ivan, the one and only mighty silverback gorilla, who has been caged at a mall just off the highway for most of his life.
