Over the past few years I’ve been collecting various books for children to pass on to my own. But this work has been a true delight even for me to read! This book has so much heart and depth I want to rave about it (which is why I have this Tumblr). Applegate achieves a great capacity for emotional attachment in her lovable characters and introduces difficult themes in a beautiful manner.
Ivan is now at the Atlanta Zoo (in real life)- might have to stop by and say hey!
