by Kate DiCamillo, ill. by Bagram Ibatoulline (Candlewick) 

Frances is worried about the monkey and organ grinder who play near her window, especially after she sees them sleeping outside on the cold street after midnight. To express her compassion, she finds just the right thing to say at the local Christmas pageant.

Narrated by Jane Curtin with music by Ernest V. Troost.
Includes a bonus interview with author Kate DiCamillo.
