How great to have a story from a gorilla's point of view.

My 9 year old son could never "get into" a book. But he wanted to, desperately. I found this book and surprised him with it. He was so excited because it was "big" and had more than 100 pages lol. You see, it was a goal of his to read something "big". This book, I can not say enough about it. It sparked something in him and he read, and read, and read some more. He FINISHED this book in one week! He connected with the character (Ivan) and was emotionally pulled into the story. He then had to learn all he could about this gorilla. Because of how my son loved it, he said it was 5 stars.
This book was written from the gorilla's (Ivan's) point of view. It is a bigger book, but don't be alarmed as there are not many words on a page as the formatting is not as tight as a traditional novel. But don't let that stop you either!
It is now my son's favorite book. Because of that, and what that means, I give it 5 stars.
