Iván es un poderoso pero tranquilo gorila que vive en el centro comercial Gran Circo. Allí se ha acostumbrado a los humanos que lo observan a través de las paredes de cristal de su jaula, y rara vez echa de menos su vida en la selva. De hecho, casi nunca piensa en ello. Iván prefiere ver la televisión y charlar con sus amigos Stella, una anciana elefanta, y Bob, un perro callejero. Lo que más le gusta a Iván es pintar, captar en sus cuadros el sabor de un mango o el sonido de las hojas de los árboles. Pero el día que llega Ruby, una elefantita bebé que fue separada de su familia, todo cambia, e Iván comienza a ver su hogar y sus cuadros de una forma distinta. Katherine Applegate combina humor, ternura e ingenio para crear la inolvidable voz de Iván en esta historia de amistad, arte y esperanza. Katherine Applegate ha escrito muchos libros infantiles y juveniles, y ha recibido prestigiosos premios, como el Golden Kite, el Josette Frank y el Newbery Medal.

Winner of the 2013 Newbery Medal and a #1 New York Times bestseller, this stirring and unforgettable novel from renowned author Katherine Applegate celebrates the transformative power of unexpected friendship. Inspired by the true story of a captive gorilla known as Ivan, this illustrated novel is told from the point of view of Ivan himself. Having spent 27 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. El único e incomparable Iván is a strong Common Core title that features these important strands and standards: first-person narrative; author's use of literary devices (personification, imagery); story elements (plot, character development, perspective). The English-language edition has sold over 1 million copies.
