    For me, this was a huge letdown from The One and Only Ivan, which was based on a true story 2.5 stars, rounded up I did not care for the silly dog stuff, which comprised the first third of the book it s been done before and done better although I did like the Bob illustrations, which reminded me of Jock, the Scottish Terrier, from Disney s Lady and the Tramp Thank goodness, Bob finally got to the local zoo, where he could be with Ivan the gorilla and Ruby, the baby elephant When disaster st For me, this was a huge letdown from The One and Only Ivan, which was based on a true story 2.5 stars, rounded up I did not care for the silly dog stuff, which comprised the first third of the book it s been done before and done better although I did like the Bob illustrations, which reminded me of Jock, the Scottish Terrier, from Disney s Lady and the Tramp Thank goodness, Bob finally got to the local zoo, where he could be with Ivan the gorilla and Ruby, the baby elephant When disaster strikes, readers are finally provided with a plot as Bob and friends spring into action I was disappointed that Applegate did not illustrate the creative elephant rescue of the baby gorilla, engineered by Ruby or the chaotic scenes at the shelter

    If I hadn t read and completely loved The One and Only Ivan, this book wouldn t have had much of an impact If I hadn t already cared about Bob and Ivan and Stella and Julia, this book wouldn t have gotten me to care about them And that makes me sad It just doesn t stand on its own.
