Ivan is an easygoing
gorilla. Living at the Exit 8 Big Top Mall and Video Arcade, he has
grown accustomed to humans watching him through the glass walls of his
domain. He rarely misses his life in the jungle. In fact, he hardly ever
thinks about it at all.
Instead, Ivan thinks about TV shows he's
seen and about his friends Stella, an elderly elephant, and Bob, a
stray dog. But mostly Ivan thinks about art and how to capture the taste
of a mango or the sound of leaves with color and a well-placed line.
he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from her family, and she makes
Ivan see their home--and his own art--through new eyes. When Ruby
arrives, change comes with her, and it's up to Ivan to make it a change
for the better.

I agree with Amber, both are great. The Westing Game edges out From the Mixed-Up Files...for me. That might be because I just re-read The Westing Game yesterday. ;-oReplyDelete
