Hooray! Our friends are back! Join Amos and the gang for a brand new adventure that ends in a very special surprise!

Ten 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.

Philip Stead's gently humorous tale of friendship and kindness satisfies fans of the first book while Erin Stead's elegant drawings bring a whole new life to a beloved classic.

Philip and Erin Stead are the creators of picture book classics such as A Sick Day for Amos McGee, Bear Has a Story to Tell, Music For Mister Moon, and Lenny and Lucy. They live in Michigan with their daughter and puppy.
