I liked this book because it was about a gorilla named Ivan.  One of his friends is a dog.  I love dogs.  The dog’s name is Bob.  In this story he talks about how it’s not easy being a gorilla.  He has a best friend named Stella and when she was in the circus, they chained her feet.  When she came here (to the mall), they tried to help but it never really helped.  One day, she died.  Ivan promised to take care of Rue, who is a baby elephant.  He also promises not to let her stay at Exit 8 Big Top Mall Video Arcade her whole life.
