Kids Writers LIVE! Philip Stead

The creative team of Philip and Erin Stead are back with a brand new, heartwarming story, Amos McGee Misses the Bus!, sequel to the Caldecott-award winning A Sick Day for Amos McGee.

Amos McGee, a friendly zookeeper, is very considerate and always on time. But after a late night planning a surprise for all his friends, Amos is tired. So tired that he falls asleep during breakfast and misses his bus to the zoo! Now he knows he won't have time for the surprise he planned for his friends. Unless... maybe his friends can step in and help him out.

Join co-author Philip Stead for a virtual event, as we celebrate the forthcoming release of Amos McGee Misses the Bus, in stores on November 23, 2021.

Presented in partnership with The Ivy Bookshop. The Ivy is offering a 10% discount on book orders for A Sick Day for Amos McGee and Amos McGee Misses the Bus, when placed through IvyKids Authors. No purchase is required to attend the virtual event.

This event will include time for Q&A. Have a question for Philip Stead that you'd like answered during the program? Email your question(s) to
