My 9 year old said this was a "must read".  It is a gem.  Read it slowly, savor it.  Ivan, a mighty silverback gorilla, tells his story from the Big Top Mall and Video Arcade.  He paints his way to where humans make amends, a good zoo, where he gets to enjoy a taste of what was his stolen youth.  Ivan's story has much to tell us about our humanity.  Ivan's voice speaks volumes for caged animals.  Ivan would say I am speaking too much, chattering like a chimp , and crowding the world with noise.  Read the book, hear Ivan's low timber resonate in your heart.
