Book Details

Product Description
Just before Christmas, an organ grinder and his monkey appear on the street corner outside Frances' apartment.

Frances can see them from her window and, sometimes, when it's quiet, she can hear their music. She can't stop thinking about them, especially after she sees the man and his monkey sleeping outside on the cold street at midnight.

Even when it is her turn to speak in the Christmas play, all she can think about is the organ grinder's sad eyes.

Everyone is silent until Frances finds the perfect words to share, just in time. About the Author.
