<p><b>For fans of<i> Old Yeller </i>and<i> Shiloh, Where the Red Fern Grows</i> is a beloved classic that captures the powerful bond between man and man’s best friend.</b><br /> <br />   Billy has long dreamt of owning not one, but two, dogs. So when he’s finally able to save up enough money for two pups to call his own—Old Dan and Little Ann—he’s ecstatic. It doesn’t matter that times are tough; together they’ll roam the hills of the Ozarks.<br />   Soon Billy and his hounds become the finest hunting team in the valley. Stories of their great achievements spread throughout the region, and the combination of Old Dan’s brawn, Little Ann’s brains, and Billy’s sheer will seems unbeatable.

<p><strong>Winner of the Newbery Medal and a #1 </strong><em><strong>New York Times</strong></em><strong> bestseller!</strong></p><p>This stirring and unforgettable novel from renowned author Katherine Applegate celebrates the transformative power of unexpected friendships. Inspired by the true story of a captive gorilla known as Ivan, this illustrated novel is told from the point-of-view of Ivan himself. </p><p>Having spent 27 years behind the glass walls of his enclosure in a shopping mall, Ivan has grown accustomed to humans watching him. He hardly ever thinks about his life in the jungle. Instead, Ivan occupies himself with television, his friends Stella and Bob, and painting. But when he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from the wild, he is forced to see their home, and his art, through new eyes.</p><p><em>The One and Only Ivan</em> was hailed as a best book of the year by <em>Kirkus</em>, <em>School Library Journal</em>, and Amazon, demonstrating it is a true classic in the making. In the tradition of timeless stories like <em>Charlotte's Web</em> and <em>Stuart Little</em>, Katherine Applegate blends humor and poignancy to create Ivan's unforgettable first-person narration in a story of friendship, art, and hope. An author's note depicts the differences between the fictional story and true events.</p>
