Speaking of books likely to go stratospheric, I thought I’d better give you a heads up about Ivan since we postponed this paperback release awhile back. It is, of course, the winner of the 2013 Newbery Medal and a #1 New York Times bestseller.
“A beautifully written, intelligent and brave book. You will never look at the relationship of humans and animals in the same way again. Quite simply, this story is life changing.”
— Patricia MacLachlan
