Frances is deeply worried about the organ grinder and his monkey who stand out on the corner under her apartment day and night in the bitter cold. She reaches out to the man with a sweet and caring gesture that seems to embody the spirit of the season. Beautiful details bring the 1940s setting to life.

this was a lovely story - depicting one of the real aspects of Christmas - caring for others. Beautiful illustrations too. I read it to a group of 4-5 year olds and they listened well.

An inspiring little story. I love Dicamillo, and wasn't dissappointed.
