R.J. Palacios award winning book has turned into a movie! "A beautiful, funny and sometimes sob-making story of quiet transformation" - The Wall Street Journal
Ruby is a baby elephant, she used to be in a circus. She can't sleep without a story, she always asks Ivan, the main character to tell her a story whether of it is made up or real. When it was Ruby's first day in the Big Top Mall, she was so shy that she wouldn't even get out of the truck. And Ruby also scared Stella.
Ivan is the main character of the story, he is a mighty silverback. On the poster of the Big Top Mall, Ivan is angry, but the truth is that Ivan is never angry. He has a stuffed animal doll that he named "Nottag". He is just a gorilla that loves to draw and eat his crayons. His family was killed by human beings. He watched as his mother's arms and legs and fingers and head gets chopped off, one by one.
Bob is a little shy dog, he is alone in his family. He was with his brothers and sisters in a box in a bus, the driver threw the box out of the window and landed on a highway, but Bob rolled out of the box and landed in a ditch. He walked everywhere and entered a tinsy tiny hole in Ivan's domain walls.
Julia: she is a young artist and mostly does her Homework at the mall were her dad ( George ) works ! She is one of Ivans friend and she likes to draw with him. Julia cares about all the animals and wants them to be treated the same way.
Ruby: She is a young baby Elephant and she loves to hear stories. Sadly her parents have past away and Ruby misses them a lot. Stalla treated Ruby like she is her baby! And Ruby is a Happy but sometimes not so happy girl!
Ivan: Is the main character. He lives in a Mall and grew up in Mack's house .He is a Gorilla and ha also really like to draw! He even draws a billboard were Ruby was on! Ivan has a lot of friends. He has Julia, Bob, Stella and Ruby.
Ivan is a silverback. He is very calm. (mostly) He is very funny and have a lot of friend which is trapped in a domain like him. Ivan likes drawing, he likes to draw for a elephant called Ruby. He didn't have any gorilla friends yet. When he is small, he lived with his sister and mother, but then the hunters came and shoot his mother. When Ivan and her sister, Tag was on a truck to the city, Tag died. Ivan's mom has been cut in to pieces and selled.
Ivan is lonely because He have nothing to do, no one is in his domain except Bob. Ivan has no family (not anymore). There is no gorilla near him.

I think Ivan's favourite thing is friendship he loves to have some one to talk to and some one to interact with. Ivan's lest favourite thing is loneliness because when Ivan is alone he is sad and upset and a little angry. Ivan's favourite foods are raisin yogurt and banana especially the banana peels. Ivan's lest favourite food is paint and finger paint. Ivan's favourite place to sleep is on the floor with Bob on his belly. Ivan's lest favourite place to sleep is to not sleep. Ivan's character is he is a calm soul like his mother he never yells only if he is really mad and he is nice to any one new. Ivan also really likes to paint and Mak sells his paints for money also. Ivan loves to through me balls at people. PS: Me balls are balls of poo.
