Illustrations were incredible and reminded me of some of the classic picture books from the 50s and 60s in their style.

The 2011 Caldecott winner, a sweet and simple story of Amos McGee, the zookeeper whose animals are wonderful friends. Erin Stead's beautiful, delicate illustrations bring this tender tale to life. Highly recommended.

Erin E. Stead, a first-time illustrator, won the 2011 Caldecott Medal for A Sick Day for Amos McGee.
