A Sick Day for Amos McGee

OK, just read this fantastic gem of a children's book today. The illustrations will make you want to cry they are so amazing and the story is a whimsical delight. This is a collaborative work by a husband and wife team, Philip C. and Erin E. Stead. Erin's art is created with woodblock printing and pencil and I hope to see many, many more books by the Steads. (Philip also wrote and illustrated "Creamed Tuna Fish & Peas on Toast"...funny with great collage style illustrations). Pick it up at the book store or of course come on up to the Children's Room and I'll read it to you!
