Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Japanese legend holds that if a person who is ill makes a thousand paper cranes, the gods will grant that person's wish to be well again. Hauntingly beautiful illustrations by Caldecott-medalist Ed Young enhance the story of Sadako, a young girl dying of leukemia as a result of the atom bombing of Hiroshima. The poignancy of Sadako's brave struggle will touch children of all ages in this revised version of Eleanor Coerr's classic novel.
