Overview

The One and Only Ivan Full-Color Collector's Edition by Katherine Applegate, Patricia Castelao

Soon to be a major motion picture!

This large-format collector's edition of the Newbery Medal winner and #1 New York Times bestseller features:
• F
ull-color interior artwork from illustrator Patricia Castelao
• A special letter from Katherine Applegate
• The Newbery Medal acceptance speech
• A letter from the real Ivan's caretaker at Zoo Atlanta
• Ivan's "signature"
• Sketches and illustrations that were not part of the original book.

Inspired by the true story of a captive silverback gorilla known as Ivan, this stirring and unforgettable novel celebrates the transformative power of unexpected friendships.

Having spent twenty-seven 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.

Hailed as a best book of the year by Kirkus, School Library Journal, and Amazon, Katherine Applegate's novel blends humor and poignancy to create this incredible tale of friendship, art, and hope told from Ivan's own point of view, in the tradition of timeless classics such as Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little.
