Katherine Applegate's many books include the Roscoe Riley Rules chapter book series, the picture book The Buffalo Storm, and the award-winning novel Home of the Brave. With her husband, Michael Grant, she wrote the hugely popular series Animorphs, which has sold more than 35 million copies worldwide.
Katherine was inspired to write The One and Only Ivan after reading about the true story of a captive gorilla known as Ivan, the Shopping Mall Gorilla. The real Ivan lived alone in a tiny cage for twenty-seven years at a shopping mall before being moved to Zoo Atlanta after a public outcry. He was a beloved celebrity at the zoo, which houses the nation's largest collection of western lowland gorillas. Ivan was well known for his paintings, which he "signed" with a thumbprint.
Katherine lives in California with her husband and two children.From Booklist:
The first title in this new series for independent readers introduces good-hearted, mishap-prone first-grader Roscoe. In short chapters filled with simple, snappy sentences, Roscoe tells his own story. He’s excited about his class’ bee-song performance for the school open house. But the students’ bobbing antennas keep slipping, and kids won’t stay seated. Aiming to help, he tries Super-Mega-Gonzo Glue, a too-successful solution that attaches antennas to chairs and brings chaos, remorse, and new appreciation for glue’s cautions. Roscoe is an appealing, lively kid whose story is both entertaining and thought provoking (adults may want to review with kids the meaning and repercussions of permanent glue), and Biggs’ expressive pencil drawings add to the humor. A list of Way Cool Things that Somebody Should Invent closes. The second title in the series, Roscoe Riley Rules #2: Never Swipe a Bully’s Bear, is scheduled for simultaneous release. Grades K-3. --Shelle Rosenfeld
