Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by David de Vries

Children Ages 4-6 • 8 mins • Unabridged • © 2010

On the day Amos McGee’s routine is disturbed, he’s not the only one put out by his absence from the zoo. The animals for whom he’s the kindest of caretakers are distraught and take matters into their own paws. David de Vries’s warm and rich voice is just right for McGee. Before McGee’s sick day, De Vries’s delivery mirrors his pace as he prepares for his workday and tends to the creatures. De Vries’s restrained delivery allows Erin Stead’s Caldecott-winning illustrations to move to the foreground. Interviews with the author and the illustrator offer insights into their working relationship and appreciation for the power of picture books. A.R.
