This unforgettable novel from renowned author Katherine Applegate celebrates the transformative power of unexpected friendship. Inspired by the true story of a captive gorilla known as Ivan, this illustrated book is told from the point of view of Ivan himself. 

Having spent twenty-seven years behind the glass walls of his enclosure in a shopping mall, Ivan has grown accustomed to humans watching him. He hardly ever thinks about his life in the jungle. Instead, Ivan occupies himself with television, his friends Stella and Bob, and painting. But when he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from the wild, he is forced to see their home, and his art, through new eyes.

In the tradition of timeless stories like Charlotte’s Web and Stuart Little, Katherine Applegate blends humor and poignancy to create an unforgettable story of friendship, art, and hope.

The One and Only Ivan features first-person narrative.  During class we will cover character, character motivation, conflict, plot development, symbolism, theme, and conflict.  Additionally, we will cover literary devices such as personification and imagery.

NOTE: This class must reach the minimum of five students by August 20th to run. If we do not meet the minimum, parents will be contacted via email.

We LOVE OTA and we love Ms. Eva!

My two daughters has taken every single literature class that Eva has offered in the last three years AND each one has been uniquely different!

Eva understands the blend of teaching and making every child feel important and appreciated! This alone is worth its weight in gold; however, there is more! Eva understands the importance of blending all content areas into one class.

I encourage all homeschooling parents to take a look at what Eva is offering as she is the type of instructor you will want your children to have!
