This book was an absolute delight. In her author's note, Katherine Applegate wrote that she "wanted to give Ivan a voice of his own and a story to tell". She indeed accomplished that with simple eloquence. This is a beautiful book that I will push into the hands of my sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students.
