Since then she has moved to Texas, Florida, California, Minnesota, Illinois, North Carolina,and after she lived in Pelago, Italy for a year, she moved South Carolina. After moving to South Carolina, she has written a lot of book and series inculding the popular series Animorphs, which has sold more than 35 million copies worldwide. She now lives in California with her husband, co-assistant in writing, her eleven-year old son, Jake, and her adopted daughter, Julia, from China. Ivan is a silverback gorilla. He lives at Exit 8 Big
Top Mall and Arcade. Also, he has some very nice
friends, Stella, a elephant, Bob, a stray dog, and Julia,
a nice human. He thinks life at the mall is good. Until, Ruby, a baby elephant, shows up and doesn't
feel right and Stella dies, Ivan promises Stella to get
Ruby to a better place so she doesn't end up like her.
With his painting skills and Bob's help, Ivan is determined to find Ruby a better place, a zoo. When Julia and George discover Ivan's paintings
and put them on the billboard. (That is where the
fun begins to happen) Ruby is a baby elephant. She used to live in a herd of elephants on a animal sanctuary, where humans treated them nice until her family was shot and she was sent to the Mall. Stella, the other elephant at the Mall treated Ruby with love and respect like a mother, until she died. Ivan and bob were Ruby's best friends and after Ivan designed the paintings for her, she was sent to a zoo to live the rest of her life.

of the One and Only Ivan. Main
Characters IVAN Ivan is a silverback gorilla. He lived in the Mall for 27 years before he was located to a zoo. His best friend is Bob and Ruby and he likes painting. He might not remember stuff easily like Stella, but he is sweet, kind and generous. Before he was captured, he lived with his twin sister, Tag, and his family and his actual name is Mud, because he liked to draw in the mud. He is the one and only Ivan. Bob is a stray dog. He has always lived around the Mall and always sleeps on Ivan's belly. Since his first day, he has always disliked humans. He is fast, smart, creative, funny, and loveable. Bob is Ivan's best friend and he is his and he is a perfect character in the One and Only Ivan. Other characters Other characters inculde Julia, a kind and loveable human, Mack, a cruel, but loveable Mall owner, George, Julia's dad, Stella, the other kind and loveable elephant, plus the zookeepers that helped Ivan get into his new home and Ivan and Ruby's family. Fact The One and Only Ivan is a work of fiction, but some of the characters are real. Ivan is real, he was captured in what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Ivan's sister did die on the way to the U.S. and he didn't see another one of his kind of 27 years. He then was moved to Zoo Atlanta and spent the rest of his days there until August 20, 2012, the day he died at the age of 50. The rest of the characters, Bob, Ruby, Stella, and all the other characters were the work of fiction to make the story interesting.

I would recommen
this book to anyone, this is a great story and I think you would enjoy this book.
Happy Reading.
