Ivan is an easygoing gorilla. Living at the Exit 8 Big Top Mall and Video Arcade, he has grown accustomed to humans watching him through the glass walls of his domain. He rarely misses his life in the jungle. In fact, he hardly ever thinks about it at all. Instead, Ivan thinks about TV shows he´s seen and about his friends Stella, an elderly elephant, and Bob, a stray dog. But mostly Ivan thinks about art and how to capture the taste of a mango or the sound of leaves with color and a well-placed line. Then he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from her family, and she makes Ivan see their home - and his own art - through new eyes. When Ruby arrives, change comes with her, and it´s up to Ivan to make it a change for the better. Katherine Applegate blends humor and poignancy to create Ivan´s unforgettable first-person narration in a story of friendship, art, and hope. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Grupper.

Wilkie Collins was the author of two of the greatest mysteries ever written, The Moonstone and The Woman in White. However, like Poe before him and Conan Doyle after, he shifted easily from rational domains to the ´´superrational´´. Like them, he often preferred to indulge his occult predilection, a lifelong interest. ´´The Dream Woman´´ is one his most anthologized stories of the supernatural. 1. Language: English.
