Set in Paris, the story of an old hobo whose heart and life become entangled with a fatherless family in search of a home.

Included in Sonlight A, this story begins with homelessness and ends with coming home.

When children and their mother lose their home, they move under a Paris bridge. The homeless man who lived there finds this annoying: all this time, he's avoided emotional entanglements, and now these children are stirring his affection. Drat!

Set around Christmas time, the end is a realistic and charmingly satisfying Christmas gift.

A thoroughly delightful story told with humor and warmth. Newbery Honor.
