Synopsis

Indama Marada Al am Nooh (Arabic Edition A Sick Day for Amos Mcgee) by Philip C. Stead

Amos McGee is an old zookeeper who goes through the same routine everyday with each of his animal companions. He starts his day by playing chess with the elephant and ends his day by reading to the owl in the evening. When he catches a cold one day his animal companions miss him and visit him at home to spend time with him like they normally do at the zoo. The story ends with everyone spending the night at Amos's house in anticipation of going back to the zoo the following morning.

Reviews

Thick, creamy paper and a muted palette add to the gentle resonance of a story that ends with everyone tucked in at last for a sweet night's sleep Washington Post Here is a book that exemplifies that happy combination where words and pictures carry equal weight and yet somehow create a whole that defies arithmetic BookPage
