"Newbery Medalist DiCamillo spins a tale of compassion and holiday warmth." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

New York Times Bestseller
Time Magazine Top 10 Book of the Year
Four starred reviews (BooklistKirkus ReviewsPublishers WeeklySchool Library Journal)

It is just before Christmas when an organ grinder and monkey appear on the street outside Frances’s apartment. When it’s quiet she can hear their music, and when she looks out her window at midnight, she sees them sleeping outside. Finally the day of the Christmas pageant arrives, but when it’s Frances’s turn to speak, all she can think about is the organ grinder’s sad eyes — until a door opens just in time, and she finds the perfect words to share. With this luminous tale, Kate DiCamillo pairs with Bagram Ibatoulline to offer a timeless holiday gift.

Review:
The plotline is simplicity itself, and the text lacks any sentimentality or fluff, allowing the acrylic paintings, reminiscent of Norman Rockwell’s work in their warmth and realism, to enrich and expand the story.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Ibatoulline’s evocative artwork moves [the story] to a higher level. The setting is the 1940s, and the art captures the time beautifully.
—Booklist (starred review)

This simple but powerful story will indeed bring the reader great joy.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Yet another wonderful tale from the award-winning author that is beautifully depicted by Ibatoulline.
—Library Media Connection, Highly Recommended

Bagram Ibatoulline's illustrations are all about the contrast between warmer, golden interiors and the cold purplish blue of winter's twilight. Frances acts in a way that lets her feel joy from within.
