Amos McGee es un entrañable guardia del zoológico. Todos los días visita a sus amigos: el elefante, la tortuga, el pingüino, el rinoceronte y la lechuza. Pero un día . . . "Aaaaaaa-chú". Un terrible resfriado le impide ir a trabajar, y es una estupenda ocasión para que sus amigos le demuestren cuánto lo quieren. Un hermoso homenaje a la amistad y la dedicación de quienes se empeñan por cuidarnos, aunque no seamos animales ni estemos encerrados en un zoológico.
Amos McGee is a friendly guard at the zoo. Every day, he visits his friends: the elephant, the tortoise, the penguin, the rhinoceros, and the owl. But one day . . . "Achoo!" When a terrible cold prevents him from going to work, it’s a great occasion for his friends to show him how much they love him. This book is a beautiful tribute to friendship and the dedication of those who care for us, even if we’re not animals in the zoo.

"Observant readers will notice tiny surprises hidden in plain sight: a red balloon, a tiny mouse and sparrow popping up here and there in the story. Erin E. Stead, the illustrator, overlays her pencil sketches with gentle tones of pink, peach, blue and green, and bright red spots that belie the deceptive ordinariness of the text." —The New York Times Book Review, on the English language edition
"Whether read individually or shared, this gentle story will resonate with youngsters."—School Library Journal, on the English language edition
"Like the story, the quiet pictures, rendered in pencil and woodblock color prints, are both tender and hilarious... The extension of the familiar pet-bonding theme will have great appeal, especially in the final images of the wild creatures snuggled up with Amos in his cozy home." —Booklist, on the English language edition
"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, on the English language edition
"It's hard to believe that this is Erin Stead's first children's book-her woodcut and oil-ink artwork is so warmly appealing that she seems like an old pro." —Time Out New York Kids, on the English language edition
"Newcomer Erin Stead's elegant woodblock prints, breathtaking in their delicacy, contribute to the story's tranquility and draw subtle elements to viewers' attention." —Publishers Weekly, STARRED review, on the English language edition
"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, on the English language edition
"Erin E. Stead's beautifully wrought woodblock prints and pencil work create almost painfully expressive characters . . . This gentle, ultimately warm story acknowledges the care and reciprocity behind all good friendships." —Kirkus Reviews, STARRED review, on the English language edition
