This beautiful picture book debut includes The Best Sick Day Ever and the zoo’s animals. Friends come in a wide variety of forms and dimensions. In the case of Amos McGee, numerous species as well! He spends some time each day with each of his buddies at the zoo, running races with the tortoise, entertaining the timid penguin, and even giving the owl bedtime stories. However, when Amos becomes too ill to travel to the zoo, his animal companions realize it’s time they gave back.
