Good but to broken

Too many parts and mini titles. The book lacks continuity. Danny de Vito does not read the book well, brakes up the flow too much.

Danny DeVido is perfect!

We love these books! They are so delightfully written! Complete theatre of the mind and the descriptive sentences really truly make you feel like you are there! Not only did my twin 9 year olds love it, I loved it too! The One and Only Ivan was fabulous as well! Danny DeVito does an incredible job narrating the story! Well done I highly recommend!

Delightful for any age!

I’m a 60 year old woman. I heard about this book from my granddaughter. I thoroughly enjoyed it and laughed out loud many times through the course of listening to it. Danny DeVito was the perfect choice to narrate. I will be downloading the One and a Only Ivan next! What a great break from reality this was for me!!!

She does it again!

This is wonderful! Katherine Applegate’s wit, humor, and style shines through brightly! Bob is a loyal friend who does not consider himself a hero, but events cause his courage to turn into heroism. The wisdom of his street smarts makes him a no nonsense kind of dog! He talks about going to a dog park where all dogs are “equal opportunity playful. You sniff my rear, I sniff yours.” “You don’t see that with humans, obviously.”

You’ll enjoy it from start to finish!

Everything we hoped for!

Ivan was the FIRST chapter book my daughter and I read together, around 5 years ago. It is a story near and dear to both of our hearts, and always will be. When we heard about Bob, we were downright giddy! We talked about what we thought the plot would entail, whether or not Ivan would be in it, and more. We absolutely LOVED this book—it was everything we hoped it would be!! The plot is carefully thought out and flawlessly executed. The characters are beyond memorable—we feel like we know them. Listening on audible was a bonus, because the great Danny DeVito is quite possibly the greatest narrator of all time!!! This is now another favorite book, and I’m so thankful to get to share it with my daughter!

Did NOT disappoint!

I absolutely loved the extension from The One and Only Ivan! It had me laughing out loud, crying, gasping, and just in awe of this story! It was an awesome choice having Danny DeVito read as Bob...and be casted as Bob! So good! I don’t have a bad thing to say!!
Ma. Applegate....you did it again!!
