To paraphrase another reviewer, I hate feel-good animal books... but I'm not made of stone. Cried like a baby reading this one. It's beautiful and life-affirming and all that crap, and it comes by it honestly.

Katherine Applegate Love this review, Kate! I'm getting this reaction a lot: "I didn't think I liked animal books, but IVAN's different . . . ."

Thanks for the kind words (and all that crap),

Katherine Applegate

Kate Wow, this made my day! Thanks, Katherine, for your great writing and wonderful characters - I can't wait to share Ivan with several kids' book clubs at my library. (My library kids love your other books too, by the way - Animorphs still fly off the shelves!)
