About This Book
Friends come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. In Amos McGee’s case, all sorts of species, too!
Every day, Amos spends time with each of his friends at the zoo, running races with the tortoise, keeping the shy penguin company, and reading bedtime stories to the owl.
But when Amos is too sick to make it to the zoo, his friends return the favor.
