humorous and heartwarming, poignant and thought-provoking, and a whole slew of words that escape me but would be perfect to describe just how wonderful this book is. ivan, a gorilla in captivity since he was a juvenile, offers his thoughts about his art (when he is tired of drawing he eats his crayons), his philosophy on patience (he counts the days in a continuous tally) and ruminates on his own misunderstood intelligence (“try knuckle-walking for an hour. you tell me: which way is more fun?”). this story will delight kids of all ages and perhaps the next time you get the feeling the animals at the zoo are watching you with curious eyes, you may be right.

Is it my fascination with tattoos (I lost count of mine), my love of science fiction (Star Wars vs. Star Trek: let's talk.) or the fact that Ray Bradbury is one of the best storytellers of this century?
