Amos McGee Misses the Bus

10 years after the phenomenally successful, Caldecott Medal-winning classic, A Sick Day for Amos McGee, we get to meet back up with the gang in a brand new, heartwarming story.

Amos McGee, a friendly zookeeper, is very considerate and always on time. But after a late night planning a surprise for all his friends, Amos is tired. So tired that he falls asleep during breakfast and misses his bus to the zoo!

Now he knows he won't have time for the surprise he planned for his friends. Unless . . . maybe his friends can step in and help him out.

This follow up to the Caldecott Medal winner A Sick Day for Amos McGee will delight readers with Philip C. Stead’s gently humorous tale of friendship and kindness and Erin E. Stead’s elegant drawings that bring a whole new life to a beloved cast of characters.

Coming 11.2.21.
