Amos McGee is as kindly and conscientious a zookeeper as you will find. Day after day he demonstrates the perfect way to bond with each of his friends: running races with the tortoise, spending quiet time with the timid penguin, and being always there with a handkerchief when one is needed by the sniffling elephant. When one day Amos himself feels under the weather and must remain home in his bed, the animals must decide together what they can do to return the favor.
