Amazon-The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate Only $11.30

Do you ever catch yourself crying at the end of a book and you are not sure why? I can’t believe I am admitting this to you but that is exactly what I just found myself doing when finishing The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate and Patricia Castelao.

The One and Only Ivan is a very sweet young adult novel that is this year’s winner for the Virginia Readers Choice award.

It is about an elephant and silverback that live and perform in a mall. When their acts get old, money stops rolling in and the mall manager has to figure out a way to keep everything afloat. Ivan, the silverback makes a promise to Stella, the elephant, and is determined to keep it. I don’t want to spoil the rest, but trust me it is a good read.

The book is on sale at Amazon right now for $11.30 for hardback (which is a really great price) or $8.99 for the Kindle edition. I would recommend this book as a read aloud for younger kids or for upper elementary on up to read on their own. I read it as an adult and loved it too!

Remember to check the price on Amazon before you buy because their prices can change quickly.
