Bob’s voice shines through in Applegate’s sequel to The One and Only Ivan. His tough guy, street rat exterior is a shell for his huge, caring heart. The storyline itself was fantastic, but what I enjoyed most was Applegate’s insight into the world of dogs. The “dogtionary” at the front of the book (including terms such as the “water bowl of power” and “zoomies) let me know right away that this was a book that was good for my dog-loving heart.
The powers of friendship, love, bravery, and hope resound in this sequel.
