Friends come in all shapes and sizes, and for Amos McGee, in all species too! A delightful story about friendship. Winner of the Caldecott Medal in 2011.

Every day Amos McGee 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 it's time they returned the favour.

A delightful picture book about true friendship.
