Lyhyt elämäkerta
Katherine Applegate is the author of The One and Only Ivan, winner of the 2013 Newbery Medal. Her novel Crenshaw spent over twenty weeks on the New York Times children's bestseller list, and her first middle-grade stand-alone novel, the award-winning Home of the Brave, continues to be included on state reading lists, summer reading lists, and class reading lists.

Katherine has written three picture books: The Buffalo Storm; The Remarkable True Story of Ivan, the Shopping Mall Gorilla (often used as a companion book to The One and Only Ivan for younger readers); and Sometimes You Fly (publishing in spring, 2018). For beginning readers, Katherine wrote Roscoe Riley Rules, a seven-book series.

With her husband, Michael Grant, Katherine co-wrote Animorphs, a long-running series that has sold over 35 million books worldwide.

Katherine lives in Marin County, California, with her family and assorted pets.

As gorillas Ivan and Kinyani prepare to be parents, Ivan faces conflicting feelings about the safety of the zoo ("the park") and his memories of the wild. When the twins are born and as they grow, their family is the subject of a documentary, which ultimately becomes the vehicle by which the twins learn of Ivan's past in the roadside mall circus. Elephant Ruby and dog Bob play supporting roles.

Here, there is no dramatic rescue, no violent storm, no tragic backstory that readers don't already know; Ivan may be a gorilla but he is an adult main character, rare in children's fiction, wrestling with adult questions. A fitting end to the quartet.

Quotes

It's interesting.
The older I get, the more miracles I seem to notice. (12)

We all learn from example. But what if there is no example to follow? (16)

It's a special kid of joy, feeling happy for a friend. (62)

You'd think the missing would end. But it doesn't. It just softens around the edges. (77)

Sometimes when the world gets stormy, the sameness of everyday life can feel like a life raft. (92)

One thing I've noticed about caring for little ones: you've got to get used to having wildly different feelings at the same time. (165)

Stories, it seems to me, are living things. Once you set them free, they're like offspring. They have destinies of their own. (178)

It was like everything in their lives. In our lives. A compromise between being free and being captive. (221)

I look at Kinyani and Raji and Tuma and I'm filled with worry and love.
I look at the humans in my life and I'm filled with fear and gratitude. (254)

From the Afterword:
Stories help us ready ourselves. For joy, for sorrow, for growth. They teach us empathy. They let us practice being better humans. (258)

...That's why I believe books for young readers should always end on an optimistic note. Children, after all, are un unwavering source of hope for adults.
The least we can do, it seems to me, is return the favor. (259)

First sentence: I am Ivan. I'm about to become a dad. I'm hoping it's as easy as it looks.

Premise/plot: The One and Only Ivan is the fourth book in Katherine Applegate's series. Previous titles--as I'm sure many know--include The One and Only Ivan, The One and Only Bob, and The One and Only Ruby. Ivan and his gorilla partner, Kinyani, are going to be parents. This book--written in verse--chronicles Ivan's adventures/misadventures as a dad as "Big Daddy."

My thoughts: I LOVED this one. Is it for kids? Maybe. Maybe not. Is it for adults who read children's books? Almost definitely. Perhaps not exclusively. But The One and Only Ivan has been published for over ten years. He is such a memorable character that readers of all ages may want to read this one. The Ivan books (and sequels) have a timeless feel to them. This one gets VERY reflective and philosophical. I think adults will almost definitely connect with the narration. The writing just resonates at times. So many places I ended up highlighting. I am so glad I read this one.

Quotes:

Look at a gorilla infant's hand. Or a human baby's hand, if you don't happen to have access to a newborn gorilla. Which I suppose is quite likely. How could anything possibly be so small and so perfect? Now extend a finger, the way I am doing, the way every father since the beginning of time has done, and watch the way that tiny hand grabs hold as if it means the difference between life and death. Because perhaps it does. My son is holding on to me. Maybe it is not because of love, or need, or purpose. Maybe the movement is ingrained in a way we can't begin to understand. Perhaps babies hold on to fingers because they must. And perhaps that's all we need to know.

I have my story. The twins will have theirs. Stories, it seems to me, are living things. Once you set them free, they're like offspring. They have destinies of their own. They're no longer your responsibility. They belong to the world.

"The One and Only Ivan" is a touching and thought-provoking tale that will inspire readers to think about the treatment of animals and the importance of empathy and compassion.

Going back and reading the first book in the series after you have read the second and third was great. Everything that happens in this book just hits differently after you have read Bob and Ruby's perspectives and it makes it even better than the first time.
Looking forward to reading The One and Only Family when it is released May 7, 2024.
