Winner of the Newbery Medal 2013.
Now a major motion picture available on Disney+!
Inspired by a true story, this is the beautifully written tale of how a mighty gorilla wins his freedom. A winning blend of humour and poignancy that will appeal to fans of Michael Morpurgo.
Ivan is an easygoing gorilla who has spent his life performing for the crowds at the Exit 8 shopping mall. He rarely misses life in the jungle. In fact, he hardly thinks about it at all. But everything changes when a baby elephant called Ruby arrives and Ivan realises he must find a new life for them both.
Told from Ivan’s perspective, this is a stand-out novel with a pertinent message, ideal for listeners of 9+.
"Beautifully written, intelligent, and brave book...Quite simply, this story is life-changing." (Patricia MacLachlan, Newbery Medalist)

Considerate & contemplative towards our brethren of the animal kingdom.
***Exceptional narration by Adam Grupper.***
A remarkable tale, played out within the fascinating minds of honest, loveable animals.
