Publishers Weekly With quiet affection; this husband-and-wife team tells the story of a zookeeper whose devotion is repaid when he falls ill. On most days; the angular; elderly Amos rides the bus to the zoo; plays chess with the elephant (''who thought and thought before making a move''); sits quietly with the penguin; and spends time with his other animal friends. But when Amos catches a cold; the animals ride the bus to pay him a visit; each; in a charming turnabout; doing for Amos whatever he usually does for them. The elephant sets up the chessboard; the shy penguin sits on the bed; ''keeping Amoss feet warm.'' Newcomer Erin Steads elegant woodblock prints; breathtaking in their delicacy; contribute to the storys tranquility and draw subtle elements to viewers attention: the grain of the woodblocks themselves; Amoss handsome peacock feather coverlet. Every face - Amoss as well as the animals - brims with personality. Philip Steads (Creamed Tuna Fish and Peas on Toast) narrative moves with deliberate speed; dreaming up a joyous life for the sort of man likely to be passed on the street without a thought. Ages 2-6. (June)
