About the book:

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.
