I think the subtitle says it all. This picture book is a great companion piece to the Newbery-winning The One and Only Ivan. It’s understandable why he has become such a fixture in so many people’s hearts! Publication Date: October 7, 2014.

Gorgeous illustrations. Lots of information. A little too much, in my opinion, which made it hard to follow the text. Learning more about the life of Antione De Saint-Exupery made me want to reread The Little Prince.

    Jealous that you got to see Ivan already! Can’t wait to read it. I’m sure the real photos are so fun to see after reading The One and Only so many times!

    Wow, you got to read the new Ivan book. I’ve heard about it, but guess I have some waiting to do to really see it. How great that there’s a book about Ivan now for the younger children. And the St. Exupery book sounds wonderful, but I’ll have to read it to see what you mean about too much info. Maybe for older kids? Thanks, Earl!
