This is the heartwarming story of a gorilla in a roadside zoo. Ivan, the title character, spends his days in his "domain" creating art, sleeping, talking with his friend, Bob the dog, and acting like a gorilla for the paying tourists. One day, a baby elephant, Ruby, is introduced to the zoo and is treated unkindly and unfairly by the owner. This causes Ivan and his friends to action. See how they change minds for the better as they search for a place to call home. See Christina Applegate's website for more info about this and other books she's written.
