A Sick Day for Amos McGee, Philip and Erin Stead, Allen and Unwin
Amos McGee has a routine. He wakes up to his clangy alarm, puts on his uniform, has his tea and oatmeal and hops on the 6 o'clock bus to the City Zoo.
There are plenty of things for Amos to do at the zoo, but he never neglects his friends. There are games of chess to be had with Elephant, races to be run with Tortoise and a quiet sit to be had with shy Penguin.
Until a terrible cold brings about some unexpected happenings.
This is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous and my favourite new picture book.
