Written by Eleanor Coerr. Illustrated by Ed Young.
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. Illustrator Ed Young combines images of a film adaptation of this story to enhance this abridged version of Eleanor Coerr's classic novel. Ages 5-9.
