The One and Only Ivan (2012)
4.12 of 5 Votes: 5
This is the 2nd version of this story I've read by Katherine Applegate (as I came to this story via the picture book version she wrote: "Ivan: the Remarkable True Story of the Shopping Mall Gorilla"). That this could really have happened breaks my heart. And yet, I'm not surprised.Beyond the tr...
Never Glue Your Friends to Chairs (2008)
3.96 of 5 Votes: 4
This gets four stars for being a good book for young boys who are reluctant readers.It gets two stars because it is of rather low quality. Not much happens other than some kids get glued to chairs. He glues them to their chairs because they keep getting up and he wants to help the teacher. He ...
El único e incomparable Iván (2014)
4.2 of 5 Votes: 2
This is a very dear story that covers many issues of loss, love, friendship, and overcoming the worst. The writing style of this book is unlike any I have read before, children's or otherwise. It is simple, but since it is told in the perspective of a gorilla, simple works well. I was put off at ...
Animorphs (1997)
4.33 of 5 Votes: 3
Frankly, of all the YA sci-fi I read when I belonged to that demographic, I think that Animorphs was the one that held me the most. The depth in the books grew with each entry in the series, and as things went on, you began to realize that K.A. Applegate was teaching us a very important lesson -...
Animorphe. Le complot (1997)
4.33 of 5 Votes: 1
I think the serious was good. It has adventure and fright, yet it has a soft side. I read it when I was 10 and was interested in the first 5. but then it started a sequence. It was the same thing almost every book. So it became a light read for me, for when I had nothing better to read. It is a l...

Geteilte Liebe (2002)

This book kills me. And not in the good "oh my good i love it!" way. Like i cannot stand this book. I just thinks so much is wrong with this story. The main character, Alison, falls for a boy named Sam. She keeps it a secret from her best friend, Isabella, but when they find out Isabella is going...

Ivan: The Remarkable True Story of the Shopping Mall Gorilla (2014)
4.43 of 5 Votes: 4
I bought this as a Christmas gift to my kids, ages 6 and 11. On the inside cover I wrote the story I've told them many times of seeing Ivan at the B&I. I'll never forget how it felt to stand by a window peering in at him only to have him run by and slam the window as hard as he could and run off ...

This was the last installment in this series. It was a very fast book to read and I liked the way it wrapped things up.Summer is now going to that Carlson school and is finishing up her first semester. She is living w/ Marquez and Diana, who has been writing to Seth and he'll be visiting her at C...
The Encounter (1996)

Tobias book! Cheer up, emo bird. I was really into him in the show (who wasn't?), and of course I was deeply into the OTP -- it gets gutting later, and there are already hints of it right here at the start, I forgot how early they set it up -- but he was never actually my favourite character.I lo...
The Invasion (1996)
3.83 of 5 Votes: 5
Started reading Animorphs 'cause I wanted to see if it was stupid. Boy was I ever wrong. Kids are fighting against mind-stealing aliens in this incredibly spooky and realistic-sounding character-oriented saga. In the first book they figure out what the circumstances of the invasion are and are gi...

The Visitor (1996)

The second Animorphs book is narrated by Rachel, who was one of my favourite characters when I was younger. I'm not sure how much I buy all her protestations that it's what's in your head that matters or whatever, for the characterisation of a pretty teenage girl who doesn't even realise her seco...
The Alien (1997)

The Alien represents the end of the First Age of Animorphs. It is Ax’s first time as narrator, and so with this book, all of the six Animorphs have had a chance to tell their story. As with the introductions to each of the human Animorphs, this book lets us hear in Ax’s own words why he is fighti...
