Book Review #1141
A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip Christian Stead, illustrated by Erin Stead
Rating: two stars (out of four)

This is a sweet book. The illustrations are whimsical and I enjoyed seeing the different animals throughout the story. While I liked the imaginative setting and characters, I wasn't a huge fan of this book. I thought it was cute and I'd recommend it to others, but I was surprised when it won the Caldecott. If you love zoo animals and quaint characters you might want to pick up this book.
