Description

"With spot-on storytelling rhythms and pacing, Newbery Medalist DiCamillo spins a tale of compassion and holiday warmth." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Frances can’t stop thinking about the organ grinder and monkey on the corner, especially after she sees them sleeping outside on the cold street at midnight. When the day of the Christmas pageant arrives, and it’s Frances’s turn to speak, all Frances can think about is the organ grinder’s sad eyes-until, just in time, she finds the perfect words to share. Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo and acclaimed artist Bagram Ibatoulline present a timeless story of compassion and joy.
