Connections: The One and Only Ivan – The Englishist
The gift of a heart from an anonymous donor and the skills of Australian surgeons have kept him alive and living life to the full. In Melbourne's Alfred Hospital, Ivan occupied the bed next to a dying David Hookes and remains one of the most amazing success stories of Australian organ donation, having had the same heart transplanted into his body twice.

How It All Goes Down
It does not take Ivan long to devise his plan; he will use his art to tell Julia that the animals need a different home; they need to be in a proper zoo, with space and sunlight and others of their kind. After a few false starts, Julia finally understands, and she and her father take action to bring attention to the conditions at the mall.
Once the general public realizes the gravity of the situation, officials are brought in, the mall zoo is shut down, and the animals are relocated to the local zoo. At first, the animals are all terrified of the change and sad to say goodbye. But Julia finds a way to make sure that everyone keeps in touch, and while things will never be the same, Ivan, Ruby, Bob and Julia know that they are each happy, healthy, and loved for the rest of their lives.
This is a moving, and ultimately joyful, story that will be appreciated by anyone who loves animals. The wonderful characters both animal and human , the lesson of compassion for animals, and the message that one being can affect momentous change combine to make this a perfect book for any age. It is a terrific read-aloud for younger children, a perfect transitional book for newly-independent readers, and simply a great feel-good story for stronger readers.
