The Best Sick Day Ever and the animals in the zoo feature in this striking picture book. Friends come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. In Amos McGees case, all sorts of species, too! Every day he spends a little bit of time with each of his friends at the zoo, running races with the tortoise, keeping the shy penguin company, and even reading bedtime stories to the owl. But when Amos is too sick to make it to the zoo, his animal friends decide its time they returned the favor.
