The Irving Public Library joins with the Irving Independent School District to celebrate the book The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. This timeless story celebrates the transformative power of friendship. Inspired by the true story of a captive gorilla known as Ivan, the story is told from his point of view. The cast of characters includes his friends Stella, an elderly elephant, and Bob, a stray dog. This is a story of friendship, hope, and art. As you spend time reading, The One and Only Ivan, you might want to learn more about gorillas, their habitat, or even more about the Real Ivan.
