Seen through the eyes of a gorilla, recounts the story of Ivan who lived in a shopping mall circus for nearly 30 years until he was rehomed with other gorillas in a zoo in Atlanta.
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 easy-going 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 for readers of 9+.
