This book is good so far.We are reading this book in our reading group.I really want Ivan to get out of there. I hope he does. I wonder if he does. I wonder if Stella gets out too. I feel so bad about the seel. She died beacuse she ate alot of pennys. Any way i hope all the animals get out of there son the can live in the wild.
I WANT THEM ALL TO GET OUT!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU...........
THE END!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
