Based on the 2011 Caldecott Medal Winner by Philip and Erin Stead, this rousing new musical tells the story of Amos McGee, a kindly and conscientious zookeeper. Day after day, Amos demonstrates the perfect way to bond with each of his friends: running races with the tortoise; spending quiet time with the timid penguin; and always being there with a handkerchief for the sniffling elephant. One day, when Amos feels under the weather and must remain home in his bed, the animals decide together how to return Amos’ favors of kindness and compassion.
