Next Great Read: The One and Only Bob


Juliet Slater and Katelin VonFeldt

“The One and Only Bob” is a sequel to Newberry Medal Winner “The One and Only Ivan”  This book is a heartwarming story that lets you know Bob’s early and current life. Throughout the story you discover many characteristics of Bob that were never shown in the first book. In this book, Bob is living with his new owner, Julia and her family. Julia’s father works at the local zoo, where Ivan and Ruby live. When Bob and Julia go to the zoo to hang out with Ivan and Ruby, there is a hurricane brewing and destroys the whole town. Bob finds one of his siblings and barely survives the storm. The book takes you through Bob’s personal life and thoughts. I would definitely recommend reading this book to find out more about what happens to the city.
