In her first picture book, Americas beloved storyteller Kate DiCamillo reunites with Bagram Ibatoulline to offer readers an unforgettable holiday gift.

It is just before Christmas when an organ grinder and monkey appear on the street corner outside Francess apartment. Frances can see them from her window and, sometimes, when its quiet, she can hear their music. In fact, Frances cant stop thinking about them, especially after she sees the man and his monkey sleeping outside on the cold street at midnight. When the day of the Christmas pageant arrives, and its Francess turn to speak, everyone waits silently. But all Frances can think about is the organ grinders sad eyes until, just in time, she finds the perfect words to share. Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo pairs once again with acclaimed artist Bagram Ibatoulline as she presents a timeless story of compassion and joy.
