A Sick Day for Amos McGee
"Amos McGee, a friendly zookeeper, always made time to visit his good friends: the elephant, the tortoise, the penguin, the rhinoceros, and the owl. But one day--'Ah-choo!'--he woke with the sniffles and the sneezes. Though he didn't make it into the zoo that day, he did receive some unexpected guests."--Dust jacket.

Memorable, lovely and charming. The beautiful illustrations compliment a great story. Sick days will never be the same.

Illustrations were incredible and reminded me of some of the classic picture books from the 50s and 60s in their style.
