My favourite part was whenIvan was sitting in his room watching TV and these little kids camealong and started pumping their chests so then Ivan decided to do itto them and they sat down and started crying because it was so loud.What was the main idea? I think the main idea was to tell peoplethat animals feel the same way just like humans!!!
