This companion to Newbery-winning The One and Only Ivan (2012) takes the same formâshort sections of sparse, first-person narrationâthis time centered on Bob, Ivan the silverback's scrappy little dog friend. While Bob supplies a sharp, lively voice that young readers will enjoy, he can't quite live up to the charm and gentle otherness of the soft-spoken gorilla. The story picks up with Bob enjoying domestic life and Ivan comfortable in a zoo, along with Ruby the elephant. The plot drags in the first half, heavy with digressions as it catches readers up and fleshes out Bob's origins. A traumatic event as a pup (safe for young readers), it turns out, largely informs Bob's attitude. After a hurricane rolls in, wreaking havoc on the zoo and surrounding town, Bob is pushed to confront his guilt and become the big-hearted hero we know he can be. Fans of the first book will love catching up with cherished friends, and newcomers, too, will enjoy this heartfelt story of survival.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Buzz for this Newbery follow-up would be big even if there weren't a silver-screen Ivan adaptation on the horizon.
